In 1996, Geller asked everyone to touch an orange spot on the TV screen in order to make England win the 1996 European Football Championship. Immediately after that, they got knocked out of the competition by Germany.
The Orange DotIn a letter published in the Daily Star, on 16 September 1992, a Mrs P Standing was quoted as saying that after touching Uri Geller's magical orange spot things began to happen immediately. First, the cat knocked her favourite vase off the window sill; a pepper pot fell out of a cupboard and broke her ceramic hob. Then her iron broke.
