By Adeboye Amosu: Teammates are excited as Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa resumed training with seven-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions Enyimba ahead of Wednesday’s CAF Confederation Cup fixture against Energie FC of Benin Republic, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Ezenwa joined the People’s Elephant during the off-season on a one -year deal after quitting rivals FC IfeanyiUbah.
The former junior international has however spent little time with the former African champions following his involvement with the home-based Super Eagles at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) and the injury he copped while in action for Nigeria at the competition.
He has now made full recovery from the injury and will now look to make his debut for the club in the coming weeks with the CAF Confederation Cup clash against Energie FC coming too soon for him.
“IK resumed training with us on Friday. We were all happy to see him in training and he got a warm welcome from all of us his fellow players and the officials,” one of his teammates Dare Ojo told CSN.
“From what I observed in training, he looks fit and sharp. One could see he has recovered fully from the injury.
“I think his return has made our team stronger as we now have three good goalkeepers, himself, Fatau Dauda and Theophilus Afelokhai.”
Ezenwa is expected to be named in the Super Eagles 25-man squad for the friendlies against Poland and Ireland later this month.
