Nigeria goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama is back in group training after close to six months on the sidelines.

The 35-year old shot stopper, who got injured while playing for Lille in April, returned to training on Tuesday after undergoing intense rehabilitation.

The former Israel-based goalkeeper underwent surgery on his knee in May and it has been a long, hard road back to full fitness.

This comes amid calls for his return to the Super Eagles.

Enyeama on his twitter handle served a big hint that his injury nightmare could soon be over having now resumed group training after six months

“And after 6months.1st group training.??????thanks be to God.and everyone who worked tirelessly for me to get here,” Enyeama, Nigeria’s most capped player with 101 international appearances, tweeted.

He also posted a 52-second video of himself at training, facing shots and doing short runs on the pitch.

Super Eagles Coach Genort Rohr has spoken of his readiness to welcome Enyeama back to the national team set up provided he is fit enough and poses better display than the other options at hand.
