Football fans fed up with their team not winning any cups over the last 20 years called a witch in order to "clean" the bad luck covering it and end the ‘evil spell’.

 

The witch known locally as Zulema went to the Cruz Azul teams’ stadium in the city of Tula de Allende, in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo.

 

She is well known in Mexico for her witch skills and was called by a group of football fans who were worried about their team, as it has not won a League title since 1997 and has not played in the Liguilla for three years.

 

The blonde witch decided to help the supporters, saying: "I was not paid for this, I only wanted to show that witchcraft exists."

 

She then does a ritual in which she uses plants and holy water, black and white candles, a cow and a pig head and other esoteric symbols.

 

After the ritual, she explained: "In this place, in the year 1997, somebody cast an evil spell. I went here to clean it and break the spell and make the team win, at least, the next match."

 

She also added that if the team win the next match, she will do a "cleansing" ritual for the players.

 

The next match will be on Saturday against the team of Guadalajara for the Mexican League.
