Ahmed Musa to fast, regardless

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.
