Brazilian voodoo priest plans to curse German player prior to semi match

Brazil and Germany play on Tuesday in the semifinal round of the World Cup, and even without Brazil’s Neymar, Germany might have an extra challenge on its hands.

According to SBS News, a Brazillian voodoo priest has plans to curse an unnamed German player before the match.

“I’ll take their top player and bind his legs so he can’t run on the pitch,” the priest, Helio Sillman, told SBS News.

And it’s not the first time Sillman says he’s used the black magic to help his country during this World Cup. In fact, he says it’s something he does before each of Brazil’s matches and it has helped Brazil against Cameroon, Chile, Croatia and Mexico.

“Those are the four teams that Brazil have overcome,” Sillman said.
