England manager Roy Hodgson has insisted he will not be panicked into asking former captain John Terry to reconsider his decision to retire from international duty ahead of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

Germany inflicted a 1-0 loss on Tuesday night which resulted in successive Wembley defeats for the first time in 36 years and saw defensive deficiencies again exposed following Friday's 2-0 defeat to Chile.

Former England defender Danny Mills, a member of the Football Association commission analysing the national team's failings and seeking solutions, called for Chelsea skipper Terry to be recalled from retirement during his work as a pundit for BBC Radio Five Live.

Terry featured in all four of England's Euro 2012 matches under Hodgson and retired from international football following the World Cup qualifying win in Moldova - the last of his 78 caps - prior to being banned by the FA for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand.

Hodgson gave the suggestion of a return short shrift.

"We've moved on from that. John retired," the England boss told BBC Sport after the game. "We've qualified with our 10 matches and 10 matches with (Gary) Cahill and (Phil) Jagielka and we've seen a very good performance from Chris Smalling tonight.

"I think it's important that we continue along those lines, continue looking forward and that we don't start panicking and looking backwards every time we have a reverse."
