Wesley Fofana Breaks His Fast During Match, Thanks EPL by ogbiwa: 5:32pm On Apr 27
Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana has thanked the Premier League, Crystal Palace and keeper Vicente Guaita for allowing him to break his Ramadan fast during the game against the Eagles.

During Ramadan many Muslims abstain from food and drink in daylight hours.

Palace keeper Guaita waited to take a goal-kick just after the half-hour mark in the evening game against the Foxes.

The pause in play allowed Fofana to take in some liquids on the touchline before returning to play.

The short delay for when there was a natural break in play was agreed in the captain's meeting prior to the game and Fofana said "that's what makes football wonderful" in a social media post.

Fofana played the whole game as Leicester beat Palace 2-1 but he came off after 61 minutes in the previous game against West Brom, which the Foxes won 3-0.

Prior to that, he had played all of the game when Leicester beat Southampton 1-0 in their FA Cup semi-final.

"He's a young player in the middle of Ramadan so he's obviously not eating during the day," said Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers on Friday.

"I think it's absolutely remarkable. If you think of his performance at the weekend in an FA Cup semi-final, when he hasn't eaten all day, and then he had his first taste of food (later on).

"It was the same against West Brom, with the 8pm kick-off, he's not eaten or drank and he can still perform to that level.

"It [West Brom] was just one where I thought I could get him off and he could get some food into him on the bench and just protect him a little bit.

"I work with lots of players who have similar devotion to their faith and I think, for a lot of the guys, it gives them strength."

Beautiful.

This is how the world Nigerians are supposed to be understanding, tolerant and love one another, but rather the tribalism, ethnicity and religion shenanigans being used by the evil politicians since 1960 prevail.

Let us allow love to reign in our hearts and souls to move our darling nation forward.

Our diversity should be our strength.

Just take a look at the below
Let us live in love and allow our diversity to work in our favour.

IN UNITY WE STAND.
ONE LOVE.

(Only people that see themselves as animals will call the country of the birth of their grandfathers, grandmothers and great grand parents a zoo, just because one bastard that his father says he has mental issues tell them so.
Our darling nation is not and never a zoo..)

God bless all good, honest and hardworking Nigerians all over.

We Rise!

The way Christians Tolerate Muslims If Muslims can reciprocate that the world would be a better place than it is currently.

The religion that refuses to tolerate others? Unfortunately for you, white men don't practice religion the way you do.
