LONDON -- U.S. national team striker Charlie Davies has resumed full training for the first time since nearly dying in car accident last October.
Davies trained Monday with French club Sochaux less than seven weeks before the World Cup opener for the Americans against England on June 12.
Davies wrote Monday on his Twitter feed that "it's about time & it feels great! My speed is getting there too! Today was a good day!"
The car accident killed another passenger and the 23-year-old Davies broke two bones in his right leg. He also suffered a broken and dislocated left elbow, a broken nose, forehead and eye socket, a ruptured bladder and had bleeding on the brain.
