The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off on in Brazil today, June 12, 2014. As the kick off draws near all teams are anxious to get all their top players fit and in good shape ahead of the global show piece.
As preparations hots up for the mundial, several players have been ruled out at the last minute like Franck Ribery of France while others are not likely to feature because of injury like Radamel Falcao of Colombia, Diego Costa of Spain and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain of England.
As other teams count their losses, a few others have received major boosts like Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and most recently Kenneth Omeruo for the Super Eagles.
Daily Post reports:
Stephen Keshi received a major boost, as defender Kenneth Omeruo returned to full training with the rest of the Super Eagles squad at the Estadio Brinco De Ouro da Princesa in Campinas.
The Chelsea player has been out of action since Thursday, after he picked up a slight knock in training following a collision with Victor Moses.
Omeruo missed the last friendly match against the USA, while working with the physioptherapist to recover.
However, he has made a full return to the fold and participated in the team’s first session on arrival in Brazil. Officials remain confident that he will be fit to start against Iran on June 16, alongside Godfrey Oboabona in the center of defense.
