American Exports: Cooper set to dress for 1860

AMSTERDAM – 1860 Munich striker Kenny Cooper looks set to suit up for the first time this season when the Lions travel to face Ingolstadt on Sunday. The 26-year-old has regained full fitness after suffering an ankle injury on the first day of full preseason training in July.

"It's possible he is in the team [on Sunday]," 1860 spokeswoman Lil Zercher told on Tuesday. "I think he won't play from the beginning, but he could be on the bench."

Zercher also said the former FC Dallas star has been given a green light for full match action.

"He has been training with the team for two or three weeks now," she added. "He is ready."

The American has not appeared in a league match for 1860 since last November, having scored three times in 14 games overall last season. Cooper spent the second half of the campaign on loan with English side Plymouth Argyle.

Coming off a weekend win over Hertha Berlin, 1860 Munich stand eighth in the 2.Bundesliga and five points adrift of a promotion place.
