Picture A bolt of lightning once struck a soccer pitch and killed entire team
It might sound unbelievable,in 1998 a bolt of lightning once struck a soccer pitch during a game and killed an entire team, leaving the other team completely unhurt.


All 11 members of a football team were killed by a bolt of lightning which left the other team unhurt, a Congolese newspaper has reported.Thirty other people received burns at the match in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

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 [the home team] Basanga curiously came out of this catastrophe unscathed,” the paper said.


There was no official confirmation of the report – a rebel war affects much of the east of the country.
