Striker Mohamed Buya Turay played his first game for Henan Songshan after five months. He featured in their 2-0 Chinese Cup win over Chongqing Liangjiang on Monday.

He was introduced in the 78th minute for his first competitive game since he was injured in May this year.

“What a feeling to be playing on the pitch with an assist! I thank God for the opportunity and for guiding me throughout this period. I am too blessed with great people who have been with me every step to get the way here today for the thing I love. I want to say massive thanks to you,” Turay posted on Twitter.

Turay, 26, suffered a fifth metatarsal fracture on the right foot during the fourth round of the Chinese Super League against Chongqing Liangjiang Athletic Football Club at Guangzhou University City Stadium.

He was forced off in the 16th minute as his side Henan Songshan were defeated 3-2 in that encounter on May 9th.

He joined the club from Hebei China Fortune ahead of the new Chinese Super League campaign in April this year. 

Turay returns to playing could also mean a piece of good news for Sierra Leone ahead of next year’s African Cup of Nations.
