Pepe fit for Euro 2016 final

Portugal defender Pepe says he is fit and available for selection for Sunday's Euro 2016 final against hosts France at the Stade de France.

The Real Madrid defender has recovered from the thigh injury that kept him out of the semi-final victory over Wales, and is ready to take his place at the heart of the Portugal defence against the French.

"All is good. Today I trained and I’m at the boss’s disposal for tomorrow,” he said ahead of Sunday's final.

Portugal will face the in-form Antoine Griezmann, who has scored six goals at Euro 2016 so far, at the Stade de France, but Pepe says that his Selecção team-mates mustn't simply concentrate on stopping the Atletico Madrid playmaker.

"France’s players have a lot of quality, Griezmann in this case, I’ve played against him a lot of times and although he’s not tall he’s good in the air and he’s very important for France," he said.

"We mustn’t focus on one player though, we need to think in the team."
