Sporting Lisbon defender Rui Jorge has been cleared of a doping charge and can now be involved in next month’s European championships.
Rui Jorge tested positive for a banned substance contained in an anti-inflammatory steroid medication used for asthma earlier this month. But the Portuguese federation’s disciplinary commission ruled that he had not taken the substance deliberately.
“I’m very happy. He’s in my squad,” said Portugual coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.
