Comoros coach Jean Paul Rossignol is concerned the holy Islamic month of Ramadan will affected his players performance in this Saturdays afternoon kick-off against Zambia in the two teams opening match in the 2012 African Cup of Nations Group C qualifier.

Rossignol said his team is predominately made up of Muslims who are currently fasting during the day while observing the holy period of Ramadan that ends on September 9.

“All my players are affected by Ramadan we have problems,” Rossignol said in Lusaka on Thursday evening just after arriving in Zambia for Saturdays game.

“It will be difficult for the player’s, all the players will lay without eating. We will only eat one time in the day and that is in the night after that nothing. Sure it will be difficult.”

The game will kick-off at 15:00 Hours Central African Time (GMT+ 2) and will be played at Nkoloma stadium in Lusaka.

Asked about his sides’ chances of beating Zambia, Rossignol said the likelihood of his side winning were slim but that Comoros will give it their best shot.

“A draw will be a very good result for us,” the Frenchman said. “Your team has the advantage of playing a lot of professionals playing abroad in the national team our team has none.”

    I can see Friday Njikata is trying to stir up issues, mune I reserve my comment for you.

    Comoros coach stop with the silly excuses, you want to say ” I said before the game, the fasting will affect the players” you’re building reasons even before kick-off.

  10. The guys from Comoros they didn’t have enough sugar in the blood stream, that is why they were having crumps towards the end of the game. It is not possible to play on your empty stomach. We would have witnessed a good game if those boys had energy.They couldnt run from there side to the zambian side even the goal keeper had no strengh to kick the ball and cross the centre line.
