Muslims all over the world from Thursday, May 17 partake in the Ramadan Fast, a period where they stay without food from dawn to sunset.

This year’s Ramadan period will end just before Nigeria’s opening game of the 2018 World Cup against Croatia on Saturday, June 16 but during the fast, they will be warm-up matches against DR Congo on Monday, May 28 and England on Saturday, June 2.

Rohr, however, has no problem with Muslim players partaking in the fast.

My Muslim players are free to observe Ramadan, I have no problem with that,” Rohr said during an interview with ace sports analyst Godwin Enakhena on Top Radio.
