Portugal, Jun27: Portuguese football great Eusebio is back in his home town after a health scare at the European Championship.




Eusebio, aged 70, arrived at Lisbon airport in an air ambulance Wednesday after being discharged from a hospital in Poznan, Poland.

He was with the Portuguese squad at its nearby Euro 2012 training camp when he felt unwell and was admitted to the Polish hospital on Saturday.

After initial fears he had suffered a heart attack, doctors said he needed rest.

Eusebio went straight to a Lisbon hospital for a check-up after arriving in the Portuguese capital.

He has been hospitalized four times since December with a variety of ailments.

Portugal was due to play Spain in a semifinal match later Wednesday.
