Voodoo Priest to Curse Germany against Brazil

first_imgWhoever thought Ghanaian Fetish Priest Kwaku Bonsam was a mad man when he credited a Ronaldo injury to the powers of his Ghanaian god must be amuzed with the latest news coming out of Brazil.Just after Priest Bonsam took credit for Ronaldo’s injury, the Portuguese recovered enough to even score his country’s second goal in their 2-1 victory against the Black Stars.But then it is interesting that wherever Africans are resided, whether in the jungles of South America or the Amazon of Brazil, the distance hardly matters. In African communities, many of the diseases that Western medicine has cured are still attributed to witchcraft on the part of relatives.The latest information from Brazil is that as Germany prepares to take on host, Brazil in their semi-final match in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, a local voodoo priest, Helio Sillman, has announced he has been working to curse the Germans so that his country, Brazil can xxzxzqwin the encounter today in Belo Horizonte.Sillman, according to a report by the AFP is against one of the leading scorers on the German team. AFP also reported that Sillman has performed his ritual before every game that Brazil has played so far.”I’ll take their top player and bind his legs so he can’t run on the pitch,” said Sillman, referring to the voodoo doll of an undisclosed German player that will be cursed in a ceremony before the game.In his shop ‘World of Orixas’ in the northern neighborhood of Madureira, Sillman carries out a ritual before each Selecao game.Using a small football pitch-shaped box as his alter, he puts inside lit candles in the colors of the opposing team and the voodoo doll of their most important player.Interestingly, it is worth noting that Sillman’s work didn’t protect Neymar from suffering a back injury against Colombia.Additionally, Sillman’s target in the Colombia game, James Rodriguez, scored a goal and was one of the game’s key players in the World Cup quarter-final, even if Brazil managed to pull off the victory.The other semi-final match is tomorrow between Netherlands and Argentina in Sao Paolo at Arena de Sao Paolo. The two losers will clash on July 12 in Brasília at the Estado Nacional before the winners will clash on July 13 in Brasilia at the Maracana Stadium.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Spurs need silverware first before claiming to be the best – Cech

first_imgHowever, silverware has eluded them since winning the FA Cup in 1991 – the trophy their fierce neighbours have lifted three times in the last four years.Arsene Wenger’s side trail their arch-rivals by four points in the league after 11 games, but Cech believes that Spurs are still behind them in terms of success.Asked whether a power shift has occurred in the northern part of the capital, he replied:  “No I don’t think so.“There is always one odd year where things can change, but the most important thing for us is competing against the other teams for the Premier League title and for the glory.“We are not competing against Tottenham Hotspur. Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn’t win the title.“Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing.“They’ve been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression.“Success is ultimately winning trophies. We were under pressure the last couple of years, people talking about winning trophies, obviously we are disappointed not to have won the title but we won FA Cups.“Although the season was not always what we wanted, we always had a trophy at the end of it.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tottenham’s Harry Kane scoring past Arsenal’ sPetr Cech.
