After Portugal and Ghana were put in Group G together with Germany and the USA, Nana Kwaku Bonsam vowed he would inflict Ronaldo with a serious injury that would stop him from playing in the competition.

And with the tournament just a week away, the prediction is looking increasingly possible.

The Portuguese Football Federation confirmed on Wednesday that Ronaldo is suffering from tendinosis in his left knee in addition to a thigh problem that kept him out of last weekend's 0-0 friendly draw with Greece, with Bonsam is taking credit for the ailments.

Bonsam claims to have conjured a special powder from his gods, mixed with several leaves and concoctions which have been placed around an image and caricature of the Real Madrid star.

"I know what Cristiano Ronaldo's injury is about, I'm working on him," Bonsam said in an interview with Ghanaian radio station Angel FM.

"I am very serious about it. Last week, I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be used in manufacturing a special spirit called Kahwiri Kapam.

"I said it four months ago that I will work on Cristiano Ronaldo seriously and rule him out of the World up or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana and the best thing I can do is to keep him out though injury.

"This injury can never be cured by any medic, they can never see what is causing the injury because it is spiritual.

"Today, it is his knee, tomorrow it is his thigh, next day it is something else."
