Andrade back after eight months out

MADRID, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Portugal defender Jorge Andrade has been included in the Deportivo La Coruna squad to face Racing Santander in the fourth round of the King's Cup tomorrow, eight months after suffering a serious knee injury.

'The time seems to have sped by. I feel fine, as if nothing had happened. Now is the time to play an official match again,' Andrade said.

The 28-year-old centre back, who missed the World Cup finals because of the injury, severed the patellar tendon in his left knee during Deportivo's 3-2 defeat in Barcelona at the beginning of March.

Depor, who drew 1-1 with Barca in the Primera Liga on Saturday, travel to Santander holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg two weeks ago.
