Rep. Ireland's Jonathan Walters returns to training ahead of France last-16 tie

Jonathan Walters returns to training ahead of Republic of Ireland's Euro 2016 last-16 clash against France.

Jonathan Walters has returned to training with his Republic of Ireland teammates ahead of the nation's last-16 tie against France at Euro 2016.

The Stoke City forward was not in the squad for Ireland's last two group games due to an Achilles injury, but has provided a boost ahead of Sunday's clash in Lyon.

According to Sky Sports News, Walters took part in a training session on Friday in Versailles, but it is not yet known whether he will be fit to play this weekend.

Meanwhile, Stephen Ward is a doubt after hurting his ankle in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Italy.
