Montenegro vs England Match Preview
Montenegro have not yet managed to qualify for a major international tournament since they began competing as an independent nation in 2007. Despite being a relatively small nation though, they have at times managed to upset some of the bigger sides on the continent and they have indeed avoided defeat against England in three of their four previous meetings so they won’t be any kind of pushover for the Three Lions in this Monday night fixture.
In the Nations League, the Brave Falcons finished in the middle of their group, losing home and away to neighbours Serbia who did manage to qualify for the World Cup in Russia last summer and beating Lithuania in both of their fixtures against Valdas Urbonas’ side. After beginning their qualifying campaign with a handy 1-1 draw away to Bulgaria can they pull off a shock and overcome England here at odds of 10/1 with Bet365.
England have really turned around their fortunes under the management of Gareth Southgate. Expectations were low when the former Under 21 boss was promoted to the top job, but Southgate led his nation to their best performance at the World Cup last summer in Russia since 1990 as they reached the semi-finals and that was followed up by the team topping their group in the UEFA Nations League above both Spain and Croatia.
Having secured their spot in the finals of that competition the Three Lions will take on the Netherlands in the semi-finals in Portugal over the summer but they now switch attention to qualifying for the European Championships. The campaign got off to the perfect possible start on Friday evening with a thumping 5-0 win over the Czech Republic and they’ll be hoping to follow that up with another three points here at 4/11 with PaddyPower
England may have had some issues in overcoming Montenegro in the past but it’s fair to say that this Brave Falcons outfit is not quite of the same ilk having won only two of their last 13 international matches. England meanwhile appear to be going from strength to strength and with the quality they have up front through the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling they should be able to win this one with a one goal handicap at 11/10 with Bet365.
Raheem Sterling has come in for criticism for his lack of goals in an England shirt over the last few years, but the Manchester City star bagged twice in the UEFA Nations League win over Spain and he scored his first international hat-trick on Friday night at Wembley in the thumping win over the Czech Republic. We’re backing him for another in this game at odds of 6/4 with PaddyPower.
