Guinea midfielder Abdoulaye Cisse has been exposed for using black magic ‘juju’ to help his side defeat Ghana at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after he was pictured wearing a talisman which is an amulet to help his side to victory during the match in Malabo.The player was exposed while he changed his jersey exposing what he had beneath his shirt to be a charm or talisman which was expected to help him during the match. (See picture above)This came as a shock for those watching the game as this is the first time a player has been caught red-handed in the act of using juju even though it is widely known that it is common in Africa.Cisse, who was wearing the No 13 jersey for Guinea was forced to take the place of goalkeeper Naby-Moussa Yattara who was sent off after the Sylli Nationale had exhausted all their three substitutions which means an outfield players must replace him.While Cisse was taking off his jersey to exchange with disgraced goalkeeper Yattara, it was clearly captured on his waist that he had the amulet which was tied round his waist.Despite wearing the talisman, Guinea were thrashed 3-0 by Ghana to reach the AFCON semi-final. Several footballers have been accused of having used or continue to use special charms which make them perform better—despite the non-availability of any sort of evidence to back this assertion.Commonly accused footballers or those who sought for special charms for protection or to enhance their playing skills are those who come from Africa where superstition is somewhat valued than science.The talisman which is mostly associated with African charm was spotted around the waist of a player who was replacing him as the new goalie—fuelling social media talks that he was using juju (charm).FIFA laws frown on players using charms and amulets during matches and Cisse’s conduct could be drawn to organisers of the 2015 AFCON which could lead to sanctions.
