Nigeria international Francis Uzoho has taken a giant step towards his recovery from injury after completing his first training session with his Apoel FC teammates since joining the Cyprus club two months ago, Sportinglife.ng reports.
The Super Eagles goalkeeper suffered a ligament injury during his country’s international friendly outing against five-time world champions Brazil in Singapore back in October last year.
The Nigerian has been taking part in individual workout since arriving at the Cypriot outfit on a three-year deal from Spanish second division club Deportivo La Coruna.
Apoel uploaded a picture of the Nigeria in a group picture with his teammates on the club’s verified Instagram page with a caption, “Winners in a “controversial“ tournament.”
The 21-year-old has missed Apoel’s two opening games of the 2020/2021 Cypriot First Division, a 2-2 draw with Karmiotissa and 3-0 loss to AEK Larnaca. He was also not available for the team’s 2-0 victory away to Gjilani in the UEFA Europa League.
The latest development will no doubt be cheering news to Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser/Chief Coach Gernot Rohr, who will soon name his squad for the double-header international friendly against the Elephants of Cote d’Ivoire and the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia billed to hold on October 9 and 13 respectively in Austria.
