Johnny Howell, a 30-year-old gas engineer from Great Yarmouth, was jokingly told by a sonographer that his son's decision to hold up two fingers in the scan was a peace sign.
"It is just incredible that my boy came up with the right result," Howell told The Sun.
"It's a shame that he didn't put up four fingers and a thumb to predict five goals."
Johnny's girlfriend, Alice, couldn't believe what she was seeing. She said: "The second goal came and I thought, 'Are you joking?' "
The pair will spend the winnings on baby equipment as they prepare for life with a new family member.
England will come up against Ukraine on Saturday afternoon and will come into the tie as favourites, although manager Andriy Shevchenko is relishing the opportunity to face Gareth Southgate's side.
In fact, he says their upcoming opponents don't scare them.
"England are a great team, they have a deep bench, an outstanding coaching staff and we are fully aware how tough this game is going to be," Shevchenko said.
"I saw all their three group matches, not today's win over Germany because we had to prepare for our own game with Sweden.
"They are incredibly difficult to score against but their strength shouldn't scare us.
He added: "It should motivate us because everything is possible in football as in life and we will play our hearts out to give our fans even more to cheer about."
