Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has recovered “faster than expected” and he will soon join the Super Eagles full training in Uyo.
Ndidi is recovering from a hamstring injury and has been training on his own in Uyo since the World Cup camp opened officially on Tuesday.
However, Super Eagles spokesman Toyin Ibitoye has said Ndidi’s recovery has been ahead of schedule and he will soon join the squad’s full training.
“In a couple of days, he will join the full training,” Ibitoye disclosed.
“He is running well without any pains, he has recovered faster than we expected.
“He is now being loaded slowly and gradually to build his match fitness.”
The team official said the friendlies against DR Congo (May 28) and England (June 2) may be coming a little too soon for the Leicester City star, but “he will be ready for the World Cup”.
