Awaziem resumes training after recovery from malaria


Super Eagles defender Chidozie Awaziemr resumed training with his Primeira Liga side Boavista, reports.
The central defender was a member of the Nigerian squad that won silver at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Awaziem’s return to Portugal was delayed for some days as he was recovering after contracting malaria on the tournament’s final day, where the Super Eagles faced the Elephants.
The Porto-reared centre-back was named in the Super Eagles Matchday squad against Ivory Coast but was a non-playing substitute, and showed signs of physical weakness when the Super Eagles returned to Abuja.
He made only one appearance during the tournament in Ivory Coast, coming off the bench in the fourth minute of stoppage time to replace Ola Aina in a 1-0 win over Guinea-Bissau.
