Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has made a return from a short-term minor injury lay-off and has been named in Valenciennes starting line-up to face giants Olympique Lyonnais in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday afternoon.

The 22-year-old pulled out of training last week with a minor thigh problem and did not travel with the Reds for the 0-0 stalemate at Montpelliar.

However the striker returned to training on Monday and has reclaimed his place in the Valenciennes starting line-up as they face Lyon at the Stade du Hainaut.

VAFC Line-up : Novaes – Lala, Medjani, Kagelmacher (Cap.), Ciss – Da Silva, Doumbia, Ducourtioux, Masuaku – Pujol, Waris.

Subs: Penneteau, Mater, Enza-Yamissi, Melikson, Dossevi, Nguette, Le Tallec.

The Black Stars striker will be seeking to extend his scoring run in the French top-flight.

    I can’ understand why most of our players are far more effective in their clubs than with the black stars.AA needs to look at where each players is at their deadliest.Atsu for instance is effective playing from the right wing .

    this is the only penalty he has missed since joining VAFC. even messi could miss a penalty. he is still young and besides he has 9 goals in 12 games. that makes him one of the best players.
