Marseille, July 7: Just nine hours after returning from Lyon where Portugal qualified for the fil of the European Championship for the second time in its history, the Portuguese team returned to training on Thursday in Marcoussis with a training session open for fans to watch.
With the stands crowded the starters from Wednesday's game came out to greet the fans and then did recovery work in the gym, with Pepe absent due to an injury in the tourment quarter match against Poland.
Earlier on Thursday morning, hundreds of Portuguese fans awaited the arrival of their tiol team to train in Marcoussis, 40 kms from Paris, to celebrate the country's Euro 2016 semi-fil win over Wales.
The Portuguese team found a large group of euphoric fans looking forward to their arrival at the training camp at the French tiol rugby centre in Marcoussis.
Cristiano Roldo scored one goal and set up the second on Wednesday as Portugal beat Wales 2-0 to advance to the Euro fil.
The loss ended a fairy tale run for Wales who had never before gone so far in an intertiol competition, while 31-year-old Roldo can look forward to what might be his last chance to win a trophy with the tiol side.
Portugal's opponent in their third European fil will be the winner of Thursday's clash between tourment host France and reigning World Cup champions Germany. IANS
