Kinshasa daily newspaper L’Avenir said local opinion – known to believe in charms and spells – was divided over whether someone had cursed the team.The two sides were drawing 1-1 in the match in eastern Kasai Province when the lightning struck the visiting team.


“The athletes from Basanga curiously came out of this catastrophe unscathed,” the paper said.
