Super Eagles star Terem Moffi has returned to training after missing Nigeria’s doubleheader World Cup qualifier against CAR.
Moffi was initially named in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the clash against the Wild Beasts but pulled out after picking up an injury in Lorient’s 1-1 draw against Clermont Foot.
The 21-year-old has now returned to training ahead of Lorient’s Ligue 1 clash against Olympique Marseille on Sunday.
According to Lorient’s manager Christophe Pélissier, Moffi is expected to return to training on Wednesday, although he remains a doubt for the match against Marseille.
“Terem Moffi is expected in training on Wednesday, and a point will be made at that time, according to his feelings after his shoulder injury, Pélissier told actufoot.
Moffi’s potential return is a boost for Lorient. The former Kortrijk striker has scored two times and provided two assists in nine league games for Les Merlus this season.
