Japan captain Makoto Hasebe is making progress on the road to recovery from knee surgery but said Saturday he could not put a time frame on his return to action.

Back with his teammates at relegation-haunted Bundesliga side Nuremberg after rehabilitating in Japan, Hasebe said, “I guess everything is going well (but) I cannot play yet. I don’t know when I will be returning.”
