England boss Hodgson happy seeing Man Utd's Jones on training pitch

England coach Roy Hodgson was pleased to see Manchester United defender Phil Jones on the training pitch yesterday.

Jones was again restricted to a light session with physio Steve Kemp as he continues his return from a shoulder injury, training with his standby John Stones after the Everton defender tweaked his knee on Tuesday.

"It was nice to see Phil Jones in the warm-up. He is going very, very well, it looks like he might be taking some part before the end of the week in some sort of football activities," Hodgson said. "Apart from those two, everyone is fit and well.

"At the moment, things are looking good for Peru (whom England face in a friendly at Wembley on May 30). In training sessions, things are always going to happen - a knock or a slight kick - but so far so good. We have come through it totally unscathed apart from John Stones. He will train tomorrow."
