Portuguese central defender Pepe boosted his side's preparations for Thursday's quarter-final with Czech Republic by returning to training on Tuesday after sitting it out the previous day because of sore ankles, the Portugal Football Federation announced.

The 27-year-old Real Madrid defender - who scored in the 3-2 win over Denmark in their Group B clash - had undergone examinations on Monday after complaining of sore ankles following the 2-1 win over Holland on Sunday.
