Mexico's self-proclaimed witch doctor "Grand Warlock" performed a ritual on Wednesday in Mexico City aimed at helping the Mexican national squad win the World Cup in Brazil.
Antonio Vazquez and his assistants also performed rituals aimed to protect Mexico's national football team during the tournament.
Vazquez said he would first have to counterbalance the negative magic spells he claimed had been cast on the Mexican team by Cameroonian witch doctors and sorcerers.
"Cameroon at this moment, in the auditorium where they will play, they already have 200 sorcerers doing witchcraft outside the stadium, playing their drums, with their feathers," the Mexican witch doctor said.
"It is a very interesting magic because it is African, and they deal with natural forces. So they are working with it," he added.
The counterbalance rituals, he stressed, were not against the people of Cameroon but they were simply aimed at keeping the game clean without magic interference.
During the rituals, "Grand Warlock" sprayed Cameroon's flag with a liquid, which he believes is a secret potion, aimed at counterbalancing the magic.
After the ritual, he predicted that Mexico would reach the quarterfinals.
The bearded witch doctor has been predicting what would happen on the international stage and in the lives of celebrities since 1980, based on his reading of tarot cards and the stars.
However, his predictions have not always been.
The World Cup tournament takes place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July
