Spoon bender Uri Geller takes credit for another Euros upset after Scotland draw

Barmy spoon bender Uri Geller has taken the credit for another football upset after claiming he inspired Scotland’s draw with England.

The self-proclaimed psychic said he helped Hungary in their shock draw against world champions France, and now he reckons he is so powerful he could have a say in the eventual winner of the tournament.

It comes after he claimed the power of his mind was the crucial factor in the Tartan Army’s 0-0 draw against England at Wembley.

Uri, who has Hungarian heritage insists his assistance was sought by a Hungarian journalist.

He said: “I was asked to help Hungary against France because I am Hungarian.

"From now on I will only help out if the outcome helps England. I started helping footballers when I was just 13 years old in Cyprus.

“I did a lot of secret work for big teams and national teams but I am sworn to secrecy.

“A lot of national coaches don’t want the press to know what I can do.

“I could have a say in who ends up winning Euro 2020. There are supernatural powers at play.”

Scotland shocked England with a 0-0 draw at Wembley on Friday night and mystic Uri insists it was thanks to his meddling.

But Uri had warned it match for his willpower.

After the match the 74-year-old said: "This is a historic moment. First of all I must congratulate the players.

"They were incredible. But I must also congratulate every single one of those Scotland fans who joined with me to make this happen.

"They have got some real energy behind them. But this was one battle of wills they could not win.''

The result leaves both teams' hopes on a knife-edge.
