Oguchi Onyewu will hope to have fully recovered from the hip injury picked up against Argentina, as FC Twente has a colossal match this weekend.

Currently trailing PSV Eindhoven by one point for the top spot in the Eredivisie, Twente has its best chance to unseat the first place team as the two square off in one of Saturday's bigger matches. If Onyewu is deemed fit, and Onyewu told SBI that he is hopeful that he'll be ready, he could earn the start.
