Anthony Lopes back training with OL after World Cup adventure
The holidays are over for Anthony Lopes. While his teammates are in their fourth week of preseason training, the Portuguese goalkeeper reported for duty for the first time this summer Thursday afternoon at the Groupama OL Training Center following a three-week break afforded to him due to the Seleçao’s participation in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Looking healthy and happy, Lopes reunited with his teammates and staff - as well as over 300 fans who braved the stifling summer heat to support their Lyon heroes. After some jogging and exercises alongside Mathieu Gorgelin and Maxwel Cornet, who both played in yesterday’s friendly versus Huddersfield, Lopes took some selfies and autographs with the OL faithful. A personalized session awaits him tomorrow, as well as a Q&A with the press.
