Former England coach Terry Venables says Roy Hodgson deserves praise after yesterday's draw in Brazil.
Venables told The Sun: "Roy's been around long enough to know heâ€™s going to get stick when we have disappointing results like the draw with Ireland.
"You donâ€™t take the England job to be loved. You do it to try to make a difference, and Roy will ultimately be judged on whether he takes us back to Brazil next year and how well we do if we make it.
"Even if he isnâ€™t looking for it, Roy deserves a bit of love.
"Getting a draw in Brazil, and very nearly pulling off a remarkable win, is something we shouldnâ€™t underestimate.
"Letâ€™s enjoy it and give praise where itâ€™s due."
