Roy Hodgson insists he is not tempted to try and recall Chelsea defender John Terry to the England squad ahead of next summer's World Cup in Brazil.

England lost to a second-string Germany side at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday night and after the game, there were calls for Hodgson to approach the Chelsea captain and try and get him to reconsider his retirement from international football.

But the Three Lions boss told reporters: "We've moved on from that. John retired.

"We've qualified with our 10 matches and 10 matches with Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka and we've seen a very good performance from Chris Smalling tonight.

"I think it's important that we continue along those lines, continue looking forward and that we don't start panicking and looking backwards every time we have a reverse."
