Eusebio discharged from hospital
Former Portugal and Benfica striker Eusebio has been discharged from Poznan's Josef Strus Hospital after falling ill over the weekend.
The 70-year-old complained of feeling unwell in Opalenica, where he was accompanying the Portugal squad during their Euro 2012 campaign, on Saturday night and was taken to Poznan's Josef Strus Hospital.
He will return to his homeland today.
Hospital spokesman Stanislav Rusek told www.abola.pt: "He had a very good night. Today he was physically and mentally able so he was discharged by the medical team."
Eusebio was seen in the stands alongside former Portugal captain Luis Figo on Thursday enjoying the team's 1-0 quarter-final victory over Czech Republic.
Portugal face defending champions Spain in tonight's first semi-final.
Eusebio played for nine clubs in a 22-year professional career but it was at Benfica where he forged his reputation as one of the game's greats, turning out for the club 614 times between 1960 and 1975 and scoring an astonishing 638 goals.
During his time at Benfica Eusebio won 11 Portuguese league titles, five Portuguese Cup crowns and the European Cup in 1962.
Despite being born in Mozambique, he was eligible to play only for Portugal as his homeland was a dependency of the European nation. He scored 41 goals in 64 international appearances between 1961 and 1973, and finished as the top scorer at the 1966 World Cup in England.
