Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is delighted to have recovered from his injury setback even as he returned to training at his Turkish Super Lig side, Trabzonspor.

The workaholic midfield general sustained an injury in the first half of the Super Eagles‘ 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group B match  against the Chipolopolo of Zambia in Uyo on October 7.

He confirmed his return with a message on his verified Twitter handle.

“I feel so good and blessed to be back sooner than expected. All thanks to the medical team. Next game on my mind,” Onazi posted.

He was stretchered off the pitch and was replaced by Bursaspor midfielder Mikel Agu.

The Eagles went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to Alex Iwobi’s strike which secured the 2018 World Cup ticket with a game to spare.

The former Lazio man is  available for selection for Trabzonspor’s away league game against Yeni Malatyaspor on Saturday.
