Super Eagles and Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho has returned to training with the Foxes after recovering from a toe injury that sidelined him from the Foxes’ game against newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend.
His injury last week caused a doubt for his availability for the back to back Russia 2018 world cup qualifier game against Cameroon in Uyo on September 1 and Yaounde three days later.
Iheanacho, who is expected to be named in Nigeria’s squad to face Cameroon in the world cup qualifiers game, missed the 2-0 league win over Brighton and Hove Albion last Saturday due to a toe injury and will not feature in the league cup fixture against Sheffield United on Tuesday.
Leicester City Boss, Craig Shakespeare confirmed that Kelechi Iheanacho has recovered from his toe injury and he is back in full training with the first team squad.
“Kelechi [Iheanacho] as well trained this morning, but we need to try and improve his fitness levels,” Shakespeare told the club’s website.
“He’ll be training. We’ll have a decent training group and we have a decent, competitive game to play. We’re aware of that.
“He won’t feature. There’s no real major problem which is a bonus. Obviously, when players get discomfort in there, you want that to settle down by giving him a few days off the grass,” he said.
