Hodgson visits Brazil to assess World Cup conditions

Roy Hodgson is visiting Brazil to assess the conditions and facilities for England's first World Cup game against Italy.

The England manager said conditions should be "no more testing" than when he coached Switzerland at the World Cup in Detroit twenty years ago.

Amid worries over the timely and safe completion of the stadium in Manaus, Hodgson said he had "every faith" in FIFA to do "everything they can and need to do to get the games played as they should be played."
