    • After the qualifying final for the 2006 Soccer World Cup, John Safran received scores of emails thanking him for Australia's win over Uraguay. The story being that in 1970, the Australian team hired a local Witch Doctor to help them defeat the Rhodesian team in the World Cup qualifying match. After they refused to pay him for his services the Witch Doctor cursed them and for over 30 years Australia played poorly in all World Cup matches. In his 2003 TV series 'John Safran VS God', John traveled to Mozambique to lift the curse and appease the spirit of the Witch Doctor.
