'Danny Welbeck will be well enough to play for England'

The England manager Roy Hodgson spoke today about the form of the players in his squad, some of whom have injuries.

He dismissed doubts over whether Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck would be able to play because of his ankle problem.

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson will miss tomorrow's friendly against Norway due to an infected toe, but should recover by next week.

Hodgson also said that Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has been "fully active" in all of the training sessions, despite an Achilles injury.
