The Brazilian has been out of action for the Premier League leaders since suffering a serious knee injury against Crystal Palace
|It was an opportunity that came his way quicker perhaps than anyone certainly would have expected but we believed in him,
He was able to join in with the team for the first time,
said a relieved Hodgson.
He's had a ball at his feet for a while,
Hodgson said. He's been training on his own with the rehabilitation people and the physios.
It's pretty obvious that at the moment his squad on paper is an awful lot stronger than ours,
Hodgson said. No question.
