MUNICH, July 5 (Reuters) Portugal midfielders Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo were both passed fit to play in today's World Cup semi-final against France.

The pair trained separately from the rest of the Portugal squad yesterday, although coach Luiz Felipe Scolari gave no details of their injuries.

Playmaker Deco and defensive midfielder Costinha returned to the Portugal side after suspension, replacing Tiago and Armando Petit respectively.

France coach Raymond Domenech named the same team for the third game running, with Thierry Henry as the lone striker in front of playmaker Zinedine Zidane and Franck Ribery and Florent Malouda on the wings.
