Super Eagles winger, Samuel Kalu has been certified medically fit to play after he collapsed during training on Friday in Alexandria, Egypt.
The Bordeaux of France star was hospitalised on the eve of Super Eagles’ 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) opener against Burundi, after he suffered an heart attack due to dehydration.
A source from Nigeria camp at the tournament reveal to CSN on Monday that Kalu has been cleared by the medical team of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to resume action in the competition.
He is expected to resume training with his teammates on Tuesday as they perfect strategies ahead of Wednesday’s clash against the Syli Nationale of Guinea.
