Emmenike healthy again



Nigeria striker, Emmanuel Emenike has returned to action after suffering a hamstring injury at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

The attacker hobbled off injured in the Super Eagles’ 4-1 semifinal win over Mali on February 6 and was expected to be out of action for two months.

It now appears that he has recovered quicker than anticipated and is now set to make a return to competitive action.

The burly attacker took to the social networking site via his Facebook account to share the good news.

“Am (I am) fine and back playing now. Thank you for all your prayers and wishes,” he wrote.

The attacker is now expected to make a swift return to the first team of Russian club, Spartak Moscow following the latest development.

Emenike finished as top scorer at the 2013 Afcon with four goals.
