England vs Montenegro match preview
England are top of Group A with 15 points while Montenegro are struggling, having only racked up three points in the group stage. Southgate’s men will confirm their qualification for the European Championship proper if they win this evening.
The form book suggests this should be a win for England then, but fans are wondering if it will also present a chance for some of the squad’s younger talents to gain international experience.
Gareth Southgate has promised to field “a very young line-up”, so hopefully fans can learn something about the Three Lions’ squad in a game that, otherwise, should be a foregone conclusion. When the two sides met earlier in the group stage England won 5-1.
So, which young England players could make an appearance? Jadon Sancho is arguably at the head of the queue, despite having been subbed 36 minutes into Dortmund’s recent 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich.
Tyrone Mings, Harry Winks and Mason Mount all also make the list of potential starters, as Southgate looks to blood some of the younger talents in the squad.
James Maddison may appear too, and has seemingly been forgiven for recent controversy surrounding his visit to a casino. The Leicester man has been in fine form this season and could be a meaningful creative influence in the midfield.
Star man Raheem Sterling is unlikely to make an appearance though, following a controversy in the camp that saw Sterling and Joe Gomez involved in some sort of altercation.
Montenegro have little reason for optimism going into the match. It’s impossible for them to qualify, even with a win, and they are missing key man Stevan Jovetic.
