LILLE, France - Canadian striker Jonathan David, injured in a Ligue 1 game April 3, returned to training with Lille on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old from Ottawa was hurt after scoring in Lille's 1-0 win over defending French champion Paris Saint-Germain in a top-of-the-table clash.

His club said at the time that David would be sidelined for several weeks after rupturing the lateral ligament in his right ankle. Lille announced his return to training in a social media post.

The Canadian international has scored 10 goals this season for Lille. He has 11 goals in 12 appearances for Canada, whose next matches are World Cup qualifiers June 5 and 8 against Aruba and Suriname.
