Kelechi Iheanacho is now ready to join the rest of the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, according to head coach, Jose Peseiro.
Iheanacho’s arrival at the team’s camp in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, was delayed due to a muscular problem.
Peseiro revealed that the forward has completed treatment on the injury at his Sky Bet Championship club, Leicester City.
“Kelechi will arrive Cote d’Ivoire. He has finished the treatment at Leicester City,” Peseiro told NFF.
His Leicester City teammate, Wilfred Ndidi has already been ruled out of the competition due to injury.
Bayer Leverkusen star, Victor Boniface will also also miss the AFCON with a groin injury.
The competition will start this weekend, with the opening game between hosts Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea-Bissau.
