FC Porto U-20 striker, Chidera Ezeh, is making good progress in his bid to return to action.
The Nigeria U- 20 international picked up a hamstring injury before the African Youth Championship, and suffered a relapse during training a day before the Flying Eagles tackled Ivory Coast in their last Group A fixture.
As a result, coach Manu Garba could not rely on the attacker’s services in the last three games of the championship.
Since his return to Nigeria, the River Lane Academy product has been undergoing rehabilitation in Enugu.
And by the look of things, he’ll get the medical all-clear to resume full training with his international colleagues in the next one week.
In recent memory, Chidera Ezeh has been unfortunate with injuries while with the national team, having suffered a hamstring injury against Tanzania in an African Youth Championship qualifier last May.
The 17-year-old will use the next one week to get himself in tip-top condition before the start of the Flying Eagles training camp, which is due to hold in Abuja, subject to the approval of the Nigeria Federation.
