Togo or not Togo on?

The kingdom of Togo has sent a football team to Germany with a Witchdoctor who has been busy casting spells on opponents.

Obviously, they should be in the World Cup, the Holy Grail of international footballing competition, while seeking an unfair advantage with supernatural powers, in Harry Potter-esque fashion.

Togo is getting help from a higher power in the World Cup: a witch doctor.

Togbui Assiogbo Gnagblondjro III is the country's voodoo chief fetish priest, claiming to be the chief intermediary to ancestral spirits. He normally oversees 650 naked priests and priestesses who worship in a sacred forest, but he's bringing his magic touch to Germany to help the Sparrow Hawks.

End Quote!

But things haven't been running too smoothly for team Togo so far...

"Togo's Prime Minister Edem Kodjo and Sports Minister Ayouta Ouyenga arrived Friday at the hotel to resolve a pay dispute, which has been ongoing for months.

The players have been demanding a bonus promised to them for qualifying for the finals." source
