Hleb hurt his ankle in September
Belarus coach Bernd Stange plans to make a late decision on key player Alexander Hleb's fitness to face England in their World Cup qualifier.
The Belarus captain and former Arsenal midfielder, 27, who has been nursing an ankle injury, has been sent back to his current club Barcelona for treatment.
"It will be a late decision," Stange told BBC Sport ahead of the qualifier with England on Wednesday 15 October.
"He will join the squad in Stuttgart at the weekend where we will prepare."
While England meet Kazakhstan at Wembley in a Group 6 qualifier on Saturday, Belarus do not have a qualifier and have travelled to Stange's home country of Germany to prepare for their meeting with England in Minsk.
"We do our preparation in Germany," added Stange. "We go abroad to be away from the English people and media in Minsk, so it's quiet and isolated."
