Charlie Davies participated in full training with club side Sochaux Monday, marking another step in the U.S. international's recovery.
Just over six months ago, Davies was involved in a single-car accident which killed another passenger and left the 23-year-old badly broken. The laundry list of injuries included a fractured tibia, fibia, and femur in his right leg; a broken elbow, nose, and eye socket; a lacerated bladder; and head trauma.
But the pacy striker continues to heal ahead of schedule from the October injuries in an effort to make the 23-man roster the United States takes to the World Cup in June.
"I've resumed full training with my club!" Davies revealed on Twitter. "It's about time & it feels great! My speed is getting there too! Today was a good day!"
The news of Davies resuming full training came just four days after Sochaux club president Alexandre Lancombe asserted that Davies won't see the pitch for the rest of the season.
"He will not play in Ligue 1 this season," Lancombe told Est-Republicain on Thursday.
Sochaux has four games remaining in the season. Davies has two weeks to squeak into a 30-man shortlist U.S. head coach Bob Bradley will call into a training camp at Princeton University, which will begin May 17. The deadline for Bradley to name the final 23-man squad which will travel to South Africa is June 1.
