Nelson Semedo was back at Barcelona on Thursday and taking part in training despite picking up an injury on international duty.
The full-back was stretchered off during Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifying win over Serbia, and there were fears he could be sidelined for some time.
Semedo did not feature at all in Portugal’s win over Lithuania on Tuesday but is now back with his club team and seems to be OK.

The news will be a bit of a relief to Ernesto Valverde who will again be without Lionel Messi on Saturday. The GOAT said in his interview with Sport that he will miss the match but could return against Borussia Dortmund or Granada.
France duo Clement Lenglet, Antoine Griezmann and Arthur were also back on Thursday after their exploits with France and Brazil, while Luis Suarez also trained with the group again.
