Ecuador shaman chases 'evil spirits' from World Cup

BERLIN -- A shaman from Ecuador is visiting all 12 World Cup venues in Germany to banish evil spirits before the tournament starts on June 9.

Tzamarenda Naychapi -- a priest who practices magic for healing, divination and controlling events -- let out a loud scream to chase away evil spirits in the center of the pitch at Leipzig's Zentralstadion on Monday.

"I've come to Leipzig to purify this important place for the World Cup and to bring positive energy," said the 36-year-old.

"The World Cup will bring many people together...it is about people coming together and meeting each other," he added.

Ecuador are drawn in Group A and play Poland on June 9 in Gelsenkirchen, Costa Rica on June 15 in Hamburg and Germany on June 20 in Berlin.
