Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey made his long awaited return to full training with his Portland Timbers team-mates in Oregon on Wednesday afternoon after recovering from a tight hip, can confirm.

The 27-year-old Norway born shot-stopper’s come back to team training is a major boost for Coach Caleb Porter after fellow glovesman Jake Gleeson was confirmed to have been ruled out for 3 to 5 weeks with an ankle sprain.

Kwarasey will now be ready in time to make his Major League Soccer debut for Timbers against Real Salt Lake on March 8th.

The setback kept the ex-Stromgodset captain from team work-out sessions since last Thursday as he had to spend time stretching out his hip and work separately with the club’s physical trainer.
