See: Curse of African witch doctor lifted from England squad by Cornish druid
England need all the help they can get to beat Slovenia today and advance to the second round of the World Cup....
Ed Prynn, the Archdruid of Cornwall, says he has lifted the magical burden that was placed on the team in Cape Town — by an African witch doctor.
The 73-year-old mystic, from Padstow, said that the likes of Wayne Rooney and Frank Lampard, who have so far performed poorly at the tournament, will now be free to wreak havoc on opposition defences.
"I have lifted the curse put on the England team by a witch doctor in
Africa," he said.
