De Bruyne returns to training in Belgian boost

Kevin De Bruyne trained with Belgium for the first time at the European Championship on Monday, boosting his country’s hopes for the tournament after recovering from a double facial fracture suffered in last month’s Champions League final.

De Bruyne will train again twice on Tuesday and Wednesday in a bid to prove his readiness for the Group B clash with Denmark in Copenhagen on Thursday, officials said.

Belgium’s midfield playmaker broke his nose and an eye socket after a clash with opposition defender Antonio Rudiger.
