Hodgson conceded that his England team have not won enough games — but vowed to put that right in the World Cup qualifiers in the autumn.
"We’re not winning enough games," said Hodgson. "But one of the areas where we’ve been unfortunate is in the choice and availability of front players. Three of the front players I would like to have brought here have not been available for selection.
"The other night one that we pinned high hopes on, Daniel Sturridge, had to go off injured. We would like a stronger pool of front players to choose from, so when one or two get injured we still have (some) left.
"If you look at the Premier League most of the strikers are foreigners. We pick from the players that we have and I thought picking Wayne Rooney and Sturridge was a very exciting attacking duo."
