Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo has resumed full training with the squad as the team continues preparations in Ismailia for the Africa Cup of Nations, AOIfootball.com reports.
The Shanghai Shenhua star forward has been out after sustaining a minor injury in Shenhua’s 1-1 draw against Tianjin Teda in a Chinese Super League encounter and missed the Super Eagles warm-up friendly against Zimbabwe last weekend in Asaba.
The forward had some training sessions with the team in Asaba but was not dressed for the warm-up clash against the Warriors which clearly indicated the coach was still allowing proper recovery. Ighalo had said he would not rush the recovery process in order to forestall a relapse.
The 29-year-old however completed full morning training routines with the whole squad for the first time in the camp at Ismailia after working with his personal physiotherapist and also undergoing some rehabilitation exercises towards recovery.
Ighalo’s return will come as a boost to the team as they vie for honours at the Nations Cup in Egypt.
