Former England coach Terry Venables felt Roy Hodgson moved too slowly to make changes for their 1-1 draw in Montenegro.
Venables wrote in The Sun: "As is the beauty of the beautiful game, the whole country and his wife seem to have voiced opinions on what the England boss could and should have done to have prevented Montenegro from pegging back his players.
"He could have done this, he should have done that — hindsight is such a wonderful thing.
"But my biggest criticism is that he committed a cardinal sin by doing nothing in their 2014 World Cup qualifier on Tuesday. Not until it was too late anyway."
