Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he expects Croatia striker Eduardo da Silva to make a successful return following his rehabilitation from a broken leg.

The 25-year-old is making good progress having spent time back in his native Brazil, and is on target to meet his nine-month recovery schedule.

Eduardo is set to return to England and watch his team-mates in the Emirates Cup on August 2, after which he will be assessed by the Arsenal medical team.

"We hoped he would be back earlier, but it is very difficult to say," Wenger said.

"It will be three or four weeks more [until he comes back to England], but I don't really know yet."
