Kruzliak booked Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck, who struck twice on the night, so ruling him out of their next game with Ukraine.
Hodgson said: "The booking for Danny Welbeck has overshadowed the night, that's for sure.
"I don't think there'll be too many people, even in the refereeing fraternity, who will say that was a clear yellow card. A 40 yard sprint, a ball that arrives on your foot, a split second between the whistle blowing and the shot.
"You'll have to try very hard to persuade me that was a booking. He's out of the game. We'll live with it, deal with it, but I'm not prepared to go down that route that these things happen. I didn't think it was a correct decision.
"The other one he got in Montenegro, we should have had a penalty and he was booked for diving.
"But we're getting used to dealing with misfortune. The players dealt with the blows we suffered in terms of injury before the game. I hope they do the same thing in Ukraine."
