Montenegro v England EURO 2012 Match Preview


The Premier League takes its final International break for the last of the Euro 2012 qualifiers with England in pole position to win their group.

But as every England fan knows they are never quite there until that final whistle goes with a point still needed to automatically qualify.

After an unbeaten campaign it does however come down to the final game of the group for England to secure qualification for the 2012 European Championships in Poland and Ukraine.

England will travel to Montenegro with a mixture of young and old players forming quite a strong squad. The front pairing of Andy Carroll and Wayne Rooney will be the main threat, but it will be the midfield four which will be interesting with eight in the squad who will all feel that they deserve a place in the starting line up.

Ashley Young has been outstanding so far for Man United so will be unfortunate not to get a start.

Again there will be competition to get into the starting back four with Phil Jones challenging for a start, although John Terry will also expect to start.

Montenegro are the newest International team after only being formed in 2006 but have been the shock of the qualification group. They have only lost one of their six games including getting a 0-0 draw at Wembley. A win against England on Friday will give them the chance to top the group with a win in Switzerland next Tuesday.

Although this is very unlikely the game against England will be the biggest in the country’s history. The main threat from Montenegro will come from their captain Mirko Vucinic who has scored 11 goals in 24 international games.
