After a long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, Nicolas Acevedo was finally able to join his teammates from New York City FC during training.

The 21-year-old Uruguayan midfielder arrived in New York late last week and was tested for two consecutive days according to the club. When those tests turned negative, Acevedo was allowed to train. He met teammates in the club's training facility and joined them on the pitch on Monday.

NYCFC signed Acevedo from Uruguay-based Liverpool FC using funds for the allocation on March 2, but was stuck in his hometown of Montevideo due to travel restrictions on COVID-19.

The defensive midfielder, who made 36 first-team appearances, was booked 17 times by the Uruguayan U-20 team and seven times by the U-23 national team. He has been named "Joven Talent of 2019" by the Uruguayan Football Association, the best U-21 player in the national league.
