The Manchester City number one's performances have arguably dipped of late for both club and country but Hodgson isn't considering changing his first-choice stopper.
"As far as I'm concerned, I have every faith in Joe. I still think I have a top-class goalkeeper," he told reporters at a press conference following the announcement of his squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.
"It's a great pity," Hodgson added. "He's been in exceedingly good form."
England welcome Moldova to Wembley on September 6 before travelling to Kiev to face Ukraine four days later.
