    A grade 1 hamstring takes at least 3-6 weeks to heal but if he got injured in the last 6-2 defeat of his club then calculations seem right for a 3-week recovery.

      You are right bro. The period seems totally right.

  • But why did they make it look like he got injured while on National duty?

    Why was he released to come for international assignment when he was already injured. The stories doesn’t form for me. I want to start believing he had issues with the new National team coach truly .

    • Na all politics my brother,Why all of a sudden he is ok to play this week. Now am starting to believe what the guy accused him of not wanting to play in the defense. This make absolutely no sense to me.

    We shall know the truth in the friendly with Portugal in November.

    • Abi o, because it makes no sense to come to camp when you know you injured. Still trying to wrap my head around that
