Mexico's 'Grand Warlock' Casts World Cup Spell to Help Team

Mexico City (AFP) – With the help of two priestesses and a rain stick shaped like an ancient Mesoamerican god, Mexico’s “Grand Warlock” cast a spell Wednesday to help the nation at the World Cup.

Antonio Vazquez — better known as “El Brujo Mayor,” a soothsayer famed for his annual predictions on politics and the news — invoked the plumed serpent god Quetzalcoatl, worshipped by the Aztecs and other pre-Columbian peoples, to get the Mexican national team to at least the quarter-finals in Russia.

Mexico make their debut Sunday against reigning champions Germany in Group F, hoping to make it past the World Cup quarter-finals for the first time.

“We will at the very least have a 0-0 draw, or a 1-0 win for Mexico,” he said.

He has also been known to change his predictions: in January, he had predicted Germany would defeat Spain to win this year’s World Cup.
