Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru has completed recovery from a chronic knee injury that has kept him out of action for four months and has thus resumed first team training at Anderlecht.

The 20-year-old, who has been sidelined since December, showed flashes of the brilliance he was known for before the long injury layoff during his first pitch training with his teammates on Monday.

“I have been training individually for some weeks now and my progress has been awesome. The coach has told me I will be part of the first team training session after the game against Club Brugge, so by Monday, I will see how it goes for me,” Onyekuru told AOIFootball few days before he joined the team for the training.

Eager to get adequate game time to increase his chances of making the Super Eagles squad for 2018 FIFA World Cup, the former KAS Eupen forward states that he hopes to resume action for the Purple and Whites in their midweek clash against Standard Liege.

“Hopefully, if I am able to convince the coach and the medical team of my full fitness, maybe the game against Standard Liege will be the right moment for me to return to the pitch, but I am relaxed and taking it gently,” Onyekuru concluded.

First day back in full training with my teammates. Back to finish what I started. 🙏🏿 #GodsPlan
