Portugal winger Nani is hopeful of being fit to face Germany in his nation's opening Euro 2012 match after suffering an injury scare during a pre-tournament friendly against Turkey.

A fitness test conducted by the team doctor revealed that the 25-year-old suffered an injury to his right foot, a problem that surfaced during the season.

However, it was described as not being very severe, and Nani, who scored during Portugal's 3-1 home defeat to Turkey, is confident of being ready for the opening clash.

"Yes, it was a scare. It was a very dangerous challenge, I was in a lot of pain, I still am a bit, but I think I will recover well in the next few days," he told reporters.

"We will see when I return to Portugal's camp. It may have caused a small strain. I believe I can play against Germany."

The winger has five days in which to continue his recovery before facing the Germans. Group B also includes Denmark and Netherlands.

Nani has netted 13 times in 54 games for Portugal since making his debut six years ago as a teenager.
