Asked about England's campaign so far, Taylor told Sky Sports News: "In both games England put in a performance that, on any other day, would have got them a result – at least a draw.
"And I think they have been unfortunate. That happens in football, be it the World Cup or League Two. I don't think England played as badly as some people are now making out."
England play their final Group D fixture on Tuesday when they face Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte.
