Mbia sustained the injury in August during Marseille's 2-2 draw with Auxerre, when an opposing player fell on him.

He missed the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mauritius and DR Congo because of the injury.

The midfielder's return to fitness is also a boost for the Indomitable Lions ahead of the start 2014 World Cup qualifiers next year.
