Holland striker Robin van Persie remains a major doubt for the Euro 2008 opener with Italy despite returning to training after a thigh injury.

Coach Marco van Basten is pleased with the progress the Arsenal forward has made since joining full training earlier this week, but conceded the first Group C game on Monday could come too soon.

"We see progress each day and we are satisfied with that," said Van Basten. "But it is obvious he has a lot of catching up to do especially in terms of conditioning."
