Mexican 'Grand Warlock' Gives Mexico Early Advantage in the 'Magical War'

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJune 12, 2014

Mexico may be pitted in a difficult Group A along with Cameroon, Croatia and Brazil, but at least El Tri have already gotten a leg up on the magical warfare for the 2014 World Cup. 

The self-proclaimed "Grand Warlock" of Mexico, Antonio Vazquez, has performed a series of rituals in order to make sure the Mexicans aren't overwhelmed on the magical front. 


Mexico will open against Cameroon on Saturday. 

"It's evident that in addition to a football war there will be a magical war," Vazquez told Sky Sports. "Imagine that on June 13, which is St. Anthony's Day, and that we have all the advantages to win against Cameroon, 3,000 warlocks that have paid to be there at the stadium. 

"So we always need to counterbalance this situation."
