Injured Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has exclusively told SCORENigeria he hopes to return to full action on June 1 in the Chinese Super League.
Ighalo Thursday returned to training with his Chinese club Shanghai Shensua after he suffered a hamstring injury on May 10 against Tianjin TEDA.
“Hopefully I will be available for selection for the league game against Chongqoing Dangdai Lifan on June 1, I will play if I am 100%, I don’t want to force it until it is completely okay.” Ighalo told SCORENigeria
“I am fine now and I have started running, which is the last phase of my recuperation.”
Ighalo is on the Eagles provisional squad for next month’s AFCON in Egypt.
