“He’s not injured. He’s a candidate, yeah," Hodgson confirmed. “Training is training. We need to see him in games. We have to get him into either the first-team, when he's knocked someone off their perch and gets into the team or in the substitutes, or watch him in an Under-21s game.
"As far as we’re concerned in the coaching staff, all we’ve seen is the highlights of his matches with Flamengo. We still wait to see the evidence of him as a player in a team environment, but in training he’s fine, he works hard, he does the right thing.
"He's coming to terms with the way we try to work and he's getting to know his teammates."
