Cordoba returns

Focused on the DFB-Pokal

On Saturday 1. FC Köln will get the 2017/18 season started with the first round match of the DFB-Pokal against Leher TS. FC will be encouraged by Jhon Cordoba, who returned to team training on Wednesday.

FC fans in attendance for Wednesday's training session were treated to some good news: Jhon Cordoba was back on the pitch. The Colombian striker had missed Tuesday's training session after taking a knock on Monday night, but he went through all of the motions on Wednesday. The list of injured players is now down to three: Yuya Osako, Thomas Kessler, and Sven Müller.

The focus has now fully shifted towards Saturday's match against Leher TS in the DFB-Pokal. It will be FC's first competitive match in the 2017/18 season. Timo Horn, who trained alongside back-up goalkeeper Brady Scott and goalkeeping coach Alexander Bade, is excited to get things started: "We are happy that it is finally starting. Of course we want to get off on the right foot. We want to get a convincing win."

FC will train behind closed doors on Thursday and Friday. The match against Leher TS on Saturday will take place in Bremerhaven at 15:30 local time.
