Shanghai Shenhua forward Odion Jude Ighalo is now a few days away from returning to full training with after the injury he suffered last month in Egypt while on AFCON duties with the Super Eagles.
The former Watford striker suffered the injury during Nigeria’s 1-0 AFCON 2019 bronze medal win against Tunisia which has forced him out of action for the last month.
The 30-year-old is however close to returning to action after stating that he has already started doing light works off the field of play.
“I’ve made plenty of progress on the injury as I started running outside and doing ball work so hopefully in two weeks, I will begin full training with the rest of the squad,” Ighalo revealed.

Ighalo will almost certainly be in line to make a return against Tianjin TEDA next month when the league restarts.
