Hodgson believes in a country as vast as Brazil that where games take place will be just as vital as who they will be against.
"I think (the draw) is a time when speculation is rife and people have a lot of fun looking at the potential possibilities," said Hodgson.
"It is a nice game to play but I have got to say that I have not involved myself too much in that, we will get what we get really, the most important thing is to be there.
"Then you always hope that the draw is going to be kind to you in terms of where you are going to be asked to play. There are venues in Brazil that will be harder to play in than others.
"Maybe in terms of the teams you are drawn against some on paper look harder than others but I'm more concerned if anything by the venues than by the teams we draw.”
