Ahmed Musa says the Super Eagles will do everything to get a win from their first two games against Croatia and Iceland to guarantee a passage to the knock out stages.
Musa stated that it was important the Eagles put themselves in a good stead before playing their last group D game against Argentina.
“‘We need a maximum,” he said. “I think we need six points. The plan is to win the first two games.”
Coach Gernot Rohr who is hoping to start Musa said he was worried about his level of energy and other of other Muslim faithfuls in the team, due to the fasting period.
“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.”
During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating any food and drinking from sunrise to sunset; travellers can be exempted from fasting but they should make up for lost fast days later.
