Unknown substance abuse

A football match between Rwanda and Uganda was halted for 25 minutes after it was claimed the Rwandan goalkeeper tried to cast a spell to influence the game.

But before the goal there was serious controversy after Mossi lit an unknown substance in his goal.
Uganda's players tried to remove it, but Rwanda's refused to let them.
An ugly fight - involving both players and officials - ensued.

Rwanda eventually won 1-0, a result nearly as unlikely as Scotland's glorious draw against Germany yesterday. Controversy mars Rwanda win - BBC Sport, 7th June 2003.
