Mick Jagger is a world class rock star but when it comes to picking winning teams in the 2014 World Cup, he has come up empty handed. Now many are wondering if he is a jinx.

CBS News reports that the Rolling Stones frontman used his stage in Rome on Saturday (June 21) to announce to a crowd of fans, mid-concert, that he predicted a win for Italy over Uruguay and that the former would advance to the knockout round. Italy lost that game on Tuesday, 1-0 and were eliminated from the competition.
