England played some enterprising football in Friday’s 5-0 demolition of the Czech Republic but Montenegro will be trickier opponents for Gareth Southgate’s team on Monday.
England’s Euro 2020 qualifying campaign could not have got off to a better start although they did enjoy some good fortune at Wembley.
However, there is no denying that Southgate’s vibrant and youthful squad are playing some great football as they build on their run to last year’s World Cup semi-finals and qualification for the last four of this summer’s Nations League.
Raheem Sterling’s hat-trick against the disappointing Czechs was the highlight of Friday’s match but the performances of teenagers Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi also gave cause for optimism.
Montenegro are no mugs, particularly in Podgorica, and they began their qualification campaign with a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria.
The two teams have met four times with three of the matches ending in draws. However, the last encounter saw England winning 4-1 at Wembley in October 2013.
The two games in Podgorica have ended all-square but a vibrant England team can edge to a narrow win on Monday against a team that will be without their two best players – injured duo Stefan Savic and Stevan Jovetic.
A draw at half time and England victory after 90 minutes can be backed at 5/2.
Elsewhere in Group A, Kosovo can get their qualifying campaign off well by beating Bulgaria.
Kosovo held Denmark to a 2-2 draw in a friendly on Thursday after beating the Faroe Islands, Malta and Azerbaijan on home soil in the Nations League last year.
France should be able to cruise to victory against an Iceland team that are a shadow of the outfit that did so well at Euro 2016. A 3-0 victory for Les Bleus is available at 17/4, while Serbia can frustrate the defending champions Portugal, with the draw in Lisbon on offer at 14/5.
