The Nigeria keeper embarked on a light training schedule on Sunday.
Injured Super Eagles goalkeeper, Austin Ejide, resumed light training on Monday ahead of his return to full fitness.
The Super Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, said the light training for the player started on Sunday morning when he was certified fit to embark on a swimming therapy by the national team medics.
Alaiya said Ejide was fit by Monday morning although he is still being closely monitored to avoid a relapse by the medical crew.
He was seen in training with the goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu; and physiotherapist, Olawale Oladejo. The team’s medics, however, said they won’t rush the Israeli based keeper into action. They said all is looking well for him to bounce back in a record time.
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles will on Tuesday play its last training match against Portuguese second division side, Farense in Faro, Portugal, before departing Faro, for South Africa on Wednesday.
The match earlier scheduled for 12 noon Portuguese time has been pushed forward a bit due to logistics. The game will now kick off at 2:30 p.m. Portuguese time (3:30 p.m. Nigerian time) due to some logistics.
Head Coach Stephen Keshi declared on Monday that the team on ground is well prepared for action at the 2013 Nations Cup.
He urged Nigerians to line up behind the team so as to bring greater glory to the country at the tourney.
