Hodgson unconcerned over Man City problems for Hart

England coach Roy Hodgson is unconcerned over Joe Hart's problems at Manchester City.

Hart's absence from City's starting line-up is not vexing Hodgson.

He said: "Yes, he is in the right frame of mind and that is what being England manager has been like for me for the last 18 months - selecting players who haven't played for a couple of weeks.

"We aren't in the situation where I can only pick players who are playing regularly 90 minutes for their team. We don't have enough players for me to do that. But I am more than happy that Joe is ready.

"He knew he wasn't playing [against Chile]. This was Fraser's chance to show what he can do, but Joe knows it's his chance on Tuesday."
