RSC Anderlecht of Belgium attacker, Henry Onyekuru has now turned his sight towards this Thursday for his comeback game, as he aims to show that he has fully recovered from almost four months out with a knee injury.
After missing initial plans for his return in Anderlecht’s past two matches against Racing Charleroi and Club Brugge, Onyekuru could make his much-anticipated comeback against Standard Liege at Constant Vanden Stock Stadium on Thursday evening.
Onyekuru was impressive at the initial stage of his loan move to Anderlecht from Everton of England, netting 10 times in 28 games, until he copped a season threatening injury in December.
However, Onyekuru made Anderlecht’s bench on Sunday in their 2-1 win over Brugge in a Belgian Pro League playoff 1 game after featuring in two reserve team matches, and a source close to the former KAS Eupoen star says he is bound to return this week.
The source explained: “The late goal Anderlecht conceded denied Onyekuru a chance to play against Club Brugge on Sunday.
“He expects to get some minutes against Standard Liege on Thursday to build his confidence to stand a chance to compete for a World Cup place in the Super Eagles.”
