–After groin injury lay off
Nigerian international Obiora Nwankwo has resumed training weeks after suffering a groin injury.
The news is a boost for Academica as they prepare for their opening fixture against Sporting CP on Saturday.
“Obiora is okay to train Monday, so Wednesday he will join the group,” said coach Paulo Sérgio
The 23 year old midfielder terminated his contract with Romanian side FC Cluj where he joined in 2013 from Parma of Italy. In Romania, he made 11 appearances for the Railwaymen before calling it quit.
Obiora is yet to play for the Super Eagles since winning the Africa Cup of Nations with Stephen Keshi’s men in South Africa.
