Ahmed Musa has declared that
he will not cut short his Ramadan fasting because of Saturday’s
Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against South Africa in Uyo.
The question of fasting and
footballers during important football matches and tournaments came up
again in Uyo and Musa insists it is not even a thought he will
consider.
I have nothing to say about
it,” Musa said.
Ramadan is a difficult time
but it is nothing new among us to play during the ramadan so we will
not skip it because of football.
Remember, at the World Cup
under Keshi I played while fasting so it depends on the coach. If he
is going to play us then it depends on him,” Musa said.
Sources close to the team
already tip Ahmed Musa to be in the starting line up for the game
against South Africa.

The last time both sides met,
the South Africans drew 2-2 in Uyo, ending Nigeria’s chances of
playing at the AFCON in 2015.
