Super Eagles Coach, Jose Peseiro, has said that Kelechi Iheanacho is now fully fit to play at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cote d’Ivoire.
Paseiro said this in an interview with reporters in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, late on Monday.
“Kelechi will be with us in Cote d’Ivoire. He has finished his treatment at Leicester City,” he said.
According to him, Iheanacho would now join the rest of the Super Eagles squad for the AFCON after completing his treatment for a muscular injury.
Blaze fm reports that Iheanacho had been sidelined due to injury and was not part of the team’s week-long training camp in Abu Dhabi.
The Leicester City striker stayed at his club to recover fully for the AFCON, which kicks off on Saturday in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
Super Eagles, the three-time champions, are expected to depart for Cote d’Ivoire on Wednesday to participate in the 34th AFCON finals after attending a special dinner to be hosted by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu in Lagos on Tuesday (today).
