"I don't think it was one of our better performances, but there are lots of factors that need to be taken into account," said Hodgson.
"The pitch was soggy. It was suited to long ball game not a passing game. The extra 36 hours or so staying here in a hotel didn't help. Having said that I am pleased with point as I don't think we played well. We might find it is an important point."
The draw has seen England go top of Group H, one point ahead of second-placed Montenegro.
