Former Portugal and Benfica
great Eusebio should leave hospital in Poznan on Thursday after
his medical examination results proved satisfactory, local press
agency PAP cited the hospital spokesman as saying on Monday.
"The patient's status, from the cardiological point of view
is good and he's slowly regaining health but it's not strong
enough to let him leave today," said spokesman Andrzej Rusek.
The 70-year-old, Portugal's football ambassador, was taken
to hospital in the Polish city on Saturday after feeling unwell.
He has been watching matches at Euro 2012.
Eusebio has been admitted to hospital three times since
December. He has been suffering from hypertension and his
doctors have said he must have regular examinations.
Eusebio travelled with the national team to Poland and was
in the stands for the quarter-final win over the Czech Republic,
cheering alongside former Portugal captain Luis Figo. Portugal
face Spain in the semi-finals on Wednesday.
Nicknamed the 'black panther', Eusebio grabbed international
headlines during the 1966 World Cup in England when Portugal
finished third. He also helped his Portuguese club side Benfica
reach four European Cup finals in the 1960s.
