Wolves forward Raúl Jiménez has been away from official matches for almost two months after suffering a groin injury which might still put his World Cup participation at risk. With just a few weeks away from the biggest showpiece on earth, the striker has finally returned to training with his club.

Through official channels, Wolves presented various photos in which the forward can be seen working alongside his teammates. “Back at Compton!”, they wrote on social media.

As told by ESPN, the Club América youth product travelled from Mexico City last Friday to be assessed by the medical staff at Wolves, after two weeks of training in the Mexico National Team training facilities. It appears the ex-Atlético player has already overcome his injury.

It is worth mentioning that within the walls of the Mexico National Team they hope the player can be back at 100% in the next few days, given Gerardo Martino sees him as a starter at the World Cup. For now, El Tri have 15 days until the deadline for the definitive squad list of 26 players; Jiménez is expected to be a part of it.

The Mexico side will have two games to prepare before the World Cup begins, against Iraq and Sweden. The World Cup begins on 20 November; Mexico’s first match will be the day after, against Poland.
