Naismith backs Oviedo to make full recovery from double leg break

The Everton wide man suffered a horror injury in the 4-0 victory over Stevenage in the FA Cup, but the Scot believes the Goodison Park club is the best for his rehabilitation
Steven Naismith has reassured Bryan Oviedo that Everton are the perfect club to ensure he makes a full recovery from his double leg break.

Oviedo suffered the injury to his left leg during the FA Cup fourth round victory over Stevenage on Saturday.

The Costa Rica international was seto face England at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but is set for a lengthy absence and could miss the tournament.

Naismith, who has spent long periods of his career in the treatment room with two cruciate ligament injuries, believes the physiotherapy team at Goodison Park is one of the best in the country and he expects the 23-year-old to make a full recovery.

"All our attentions turn to Bryan," he told the club's official website after scoring twice in the win at the Lamex Stadium.

"He is a player that in the past three or four months has shown everyone at Everton what he is capable of.

“For something so nasty to happen like that is not very nice at all.

"But I don't think he could be at a better club for his rehab. The physios here are great and we have a squad here that will get behind him and give him the confidence Bryan needs to get himself back."
