As exclusively reported by Owngoalnigeria.com Roma Nigerian teen right back Nura Abdullahi made his long awaited comeback from the injury that has kept him out since last year.

Nura suffered a setback during his recovery and was initially billed to be out for the rest of the season, but the 19 year old miraculously recovered and played 45 minutes for the Primavera side in their 5-3 win over Crotone.

Widely regarded as one of the finest young emerging full backs in Italy, his return from injury caught the attention of head coach of the main team Luciano Spalleti.

Spalleti expressed his delight at seeing the youngster back on the pitch of play during his pre match conference ahead of their Serie A tie against Torino.

” Nura returned to the Primavera team for today’s game and he came through it fine, that is one positive for us ahead of what we expect to be a tough game against Torino”, Spalleti said.
