After victory over Birmingham City, Redknapp said: "If you are an Englishman, and a Premier League manager, and the FA come along and offers you the job, I don't think anyone is going to say no.
"You go into football and to manage in the Premier League is a dream. To manage your country is an even greater dream.
"We all want to stay loyal to our clubs but you would almost have to be a traitor to turn it down. How do you turn down the chance to manage your country?
"Of course there is some hassle with the job but there is hassle in everything in life. I just hope they get the right person and there are loads of good people around who would jump at the job."
As for his own opportunities, Redknapp said: "It is nice that one or two people in the game have said it would be good for me to get the job, but I just don't see it happening. There are so many people out there. The FA will take their time and find the right person.
"I have not got a chance. I don't think I've got a prayer. That is the honest truth."
