[picappgallerysingle id=”8956283″]Phil Jagielka, John Terry, Darren Bent and Frank Lampard are all unavailable to Fabio Capello, meaning a makeshift centre back pairing of the fit-again Rio Ferdinand and either Gary Cahill or Joleon Lescott should start. Up front Wayne Rooney is expected to be joined by Peter Crouch, with Ashley Young and Adam Johnson on the wings.
The Balkan side have a 100% record thus far in the competition – having beaten Wales, Bulgaria and Switzerland 1-0 each – and this proves their mettle.
It comes as a surprise to many that Montenegro are emerging as England’s main rivals to be group winners. Indeed, they were the fifth seeded team in the group.
However, their low seeding was perhaps due to being the newest international side in the world. In AS Roma striker Mirko Vucinic they have an intelligent player, and he is ably supported by Simon Vukcevic and Branko Boskovic, while huge defenders Miodrag Dzudovic and Marko Basa ought to cope even with the likes of Peter Crouch or Kevin Davies in the air.
It will be an exciting match, and perhaps England’s biggest test so far, but they are proving strong at Wembley.
