Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has expressed his worries over the duo of Ahmed Musa and Shehu Abdullahi ahead of the team’s opening World Cup game against Croatia on Saturday.
The former Bayern Munich is concerned that the two players will be affected by the Muslim fast, especially Bursaspor of Turkey star Shehu Abdullahi who is in line for a starting shirt against the Europeans.
Fasting ends on Thursday but the 64-year old is unsure whether the two players can quickly cover the energy lost during fasting in less than two days.
He was speaking in a chat with the German Press Agency as he said: “For the first game, it will not be easy to put it away.”
”The energy loss is difficult to balance in such a short time. We’ll probably lug it into the first game.” He concluded.
