What a difference four months make. American forward Charlie Davies says he’s “a little more” than a month away from from being match fit, reports the Associated Press.
“I’ve come a long way,” he said Thursday. “I’d say I’m probably a month away from being able to train with the team regularly, and then I need a little more time to be able to get match-fit again. So, you know, I’d say I’m not too far away from being able to play again.”
It’s still unclear, however, if he’ll be World Cup ready.
In October, Davies was seriously injured in a car accident by an unidentified drunk driver, which left him with two broken bones in his right leg, a broken and dislocated left elbow, a broken nose, forehead and eye socket, a fracture in his face, a ruptured bladder and internal bleeding.
