Hodgson was at Old Trafford last night to watch Wayne Rooney, amongst others, and must have been delighted with the Manchester United forward's typically industrious display.
If there is a concern, it is that the transfer window does not close until late on Monday evening, the same day as England's players meet at St George's Park.
That does bring the potential for slight disruption - and not just to Rooney given Leighton Baines is another whose future is the subject of open debate - but by Friday's meeting with Moldova, the striker should be fully focused.
He will need to be sharp too given Daniel Sturridge's excellent start to the campaign.
The Liverpool forward has scored the only goal in the victories over Stoke and Aston Villa, having recovered from the ankle problem that kept him out of the win over Scotland at Wembley earlier this month.
As Hodgson has opted to announce his squad unusually early, prior not just to a round of Premier League fixtures, but also assorted midweek Capital One Cup and European games, he is expected to name a larger than usual party.
That means there should also be room for Southampton's Rickie Lambert, who had a dream start to his international career, scoring the winning goal with his first touch against the Scots.
One player who already looks certain to miss out is goalkeeper Ben Foster, who sustained an ankle injury in West Brom's draw at Everton on Saturday, which could keep him out for a lengthy period.
And the Football Association are particularly uncomfortable matches between Arsenal and Tottenham, plus Liverpool and Manchester United, are both taking place on Sunday.
They argued such high-profile Premier League fixtures will effectively mean Hodgson will not get his squad together for a full training session until Wednesday due to extended recovery time.
However, speaking last month, Hodgson said it was not an issue for him.
Meanwhile, new Under-21s boss Gareth Southgate is expected to face the media for the first time since his appointment as Stuart Pearce's successor.
His team take on Moldova in Reading on September 5 and visit Finland four days later.
