Never mind the vuvuzelas, Brazilian World Cup fans are giving rivals Argentina the needle with some voodoo 'fun.'

Brazilian sports daily Lance and Mexican equivalent Record reported that voodoo-style dolls of Argentina in particular have proved a hit.

A Brazilian website,, has been selling the 15cm-tall dolls with five needles included.

"Stab your pin with the best of intentions," said the advertising blurb which accompanies the site.

There's even a doll of Argentina coach Diego Maradona - though there's also one of Brazil's own - much maligned - Dunga.

The men behind the site, Rodrigo Fachel and Daniel Kamagusuku, told Lance that dolls dressed in the colours of France, Italy and Germany were also quite popular.

"It's just a bit of fun," they told Lance.

Record noted that last year their office also had a doll ready for when Mexico met regional rivals the United States.

"It didn't help much - and it caused a furore," the paper noted.
