BRIAN SCIARETTA - Thursday, February 24, 2011
American left back Amaechi Igwe is putting the finishing touches on his long road to recovery from a knee injury as he played the first half for Ingolstadt in a friendly against the reserve team of Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Igwe, 22, signed with Ingolstadt last summer but has not been able to play for the struggling 2.Bundesliga club this season due to the injury.

Currently in the relegation zone, Ingolstadt could receive a boost from Igwe down the stretch to help assure they remain in the 2.Bundesliga next year.
