Rio call surprises boss

"It's hard for those players to get back and get the proper preparation for a lunchtime game against Sunderland [on 30 March]. Other than that we can get most of the players back quickly. The English players will be back the night after their second game [on Tuesday]. Nani is out of the Portugal game. France are at home, Netherlands are at home and Northern Ireland are at home so we don’t have any great issues with [Patrice Evra, Robin van Persie and Jonny Evans]."
