This decider game for the national team needs to end in nothing less than a win in order for the team to progress to the finals. Knowing what’s at stake, South Africans even call on traditional healers to brew some muthi to help our boys.

Briefly News spoke to renowned traditional healer Gogo Skhotheni on whether she would be contributing some of her magic to help the boys succeed:

“The only way I can help Bafana Bafana is if they come to my door step for help because they will stand to make money and what will I gain from helping them? For now they are on their own.”

This would not be the first time the national team allegedly sought the help of a sangoma in a tournament.

In 2011, News24 reported that a sangoma claimed the South African Football Association (SAFA) owed him R90 000 for providing the "magic" to beat France in the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Whether it’s muthi, positive energy, thoughts and prayers, we all root for Bafana Bafana and know they will make our nation proud.

Go, Bafana Bafana, go!
