According to RFI, a spiritualist known as Nji Ousseni, confirmed several players of the Indomitable Lions have visited his shrine for help.

"As the World Cup approaches, several Indomitable Lions players are resorting to witchcraft, magic, marabouts with the aim of destabilizing their opponents. Everyone wants to be selected, or to be a holder. Thus for important competitions such as the World Cup or the African Cup of Nations, players often call on my services to invoke the gods in order to disturb the opponent," said Ousseni to RFI.

Cameroon's preparations to the World Cup has not been entirely smooth after defeats to Uzbekistan and South Korea during the international break.

The Indomitable Lions have been drawn in Group G of the World Cup alongside Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia.
