From what we’ve heard, Skeeve is expecting a nail-biter as England host Montenegro next. The Three Lions can secure themselves a place at Euro 2020 with a win in their upcoming outing.
Things didn’t go as planned when they lost 2-1 to the Czech Republic in their eighth match of the group stages.
Montenegro are yet to win a match in the Euro Qualifying stages with just 3 draws and four losses overall. This is one of the many reasons why our own Skeeve thinks the Three Lions will triumph here!
England Team News
Similar to the previous outings, Southgate is expected to go with an ultra-offensive 11-man squad. The front three will probably see Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, and Jadon Sancho all in action.
A relatively young midfield three could feature here as well with both Declan Rice and Ross Barkley frontrunners for a place. Henderson is also in contention for a place in the middle of the park.
Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)
Walker - Mings - Maguire - Chilwell
Barkley - Rice - Henderson
Sancho - Kane - Rashford
Montenegro Team News
The difference in the quality of players between the two is quite evident. But a classic 4-5-1 formation is expected to help Montenegro keep out the strong England attacks and maybe pick up a point for the away side.
Stefan Savic of Atletico Madrid and Adam Marusic of Lazio are the two most popular faces in this Montenegro side. In attack, Mugosa is the one expected to start.
Marko Vesovic could also have a chance in the starting lineup for Montenegro.
Predicted Line-up (4-5-1)
Raspopovic - Savic - Simic - Bulatovic
Marusic - Ivanic - Vukcevic - Hocko - Vesovic
- 25-03-2019: Montenegro 1-5 England
- 11-10-2013: England 4-1 Montenegro
