Raul Jimenez did not play a part in Mexico’s last two fixtures but has now returned to training ahead of their clash with Panama tomorrow.

The Wolves hitman was left out of the squad for the most recent game before the international break, the 2-1 win over Brentford.

That was due to a calf injury but he is seemingly on the road to recovery and is now back in full sessions with the squad.

Without Jimenez last time out, Mexico drew 0-0 with Costa Rica, but they did win the game before that away from home against Jamaica.

It looks like being a tight squeeze for Jimenez to play, recover and be ready to play against Norwich on Saturday at 3pm.

That is especially the case given his recent injury problems and Bruno Lage has managed him carefully after international duty before, leaving him out against Aston Villa earlier this season.

Wolves need to hope that Raul has been perked up slightly by his time away, because he has been struggling to find his best form of late.

Hopefully the injury will not hold him back from getting there and maybe a little break from training will have done him some good.

He has just one Premier League goal since November and a fit and firing Jimenez could make a huge difference in the race for Europe.
