England travel to table topping Montenegro hoping to inflict their first defeat in five games and replace them top of Group H in the World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign.
Montenegro – 4/1 Betfred
Draw – 11/4 Betfred
England – 9/10 Bet Victor
Branko Brnovic’s men are currently on an excellent run of form in Group H, they have W4 and D1 of their five games so far. Admittedly two of them games were against San Marino so they don’t count as my 7 year old daughter could get in that San Marino side! But they did come away with a very good 0-1 away win against the Ukraine and they haven’t conceded in 4 games. Confidence will be high and with Jovetic and Vucinic up front they have a very real goal threat as well as looking solid at the back. England though will easily be their toughest test.
England sit in second place in Group H with a record of W3 and D2 so far and they will be looking to at least match the result the last time they played in Podgorica. Wayne Rooney will have to be careful as he will no doubt be targeted after his sending off last time they met. England’s obvious weak link at the moment is in defence with bit part players Joleon Lescott and Chris Smalling looking like they will play given the injury crisis in that position. They will have a much tougher test against the Fiorentina and Juventus strikers in this game as opposed to the Fidene and Fiorentino strikers they faced against San Marino!
Wayne Rooney has scored in his last 3 qualifiers and with what happened last time he played in Podgorica I think he will what to show Montenegro what he is all about, however I’m not sure the England defence will keep Montenegro out.
Wayne Rooney Anytime – 6/4 Bet Victor
Both teams to score – Yes – Evs Paddy Power
