11:10 a.m.

Belgium captain Eden Hazard has returned to training ahead of the team's European Championship quarterfinal match against Wales.

Hazard missed practice sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday because of a thigh problem. He trained early Thursday at the team's base in Bordeaux, before the Belgians' scheduled departure to the northern city of Lille where Friday's match against Wales is staged.

The Chelsea winger is Belgium's most dangerous attacking player and starred in the 4-0 victory over Hungary in the round of 16.
