Gareth Southgate and co will want to crown the milestone with a strong performance and a win as they look to top Group A in qualifying.

The build-up to the match as been marred by the training ground bust-up between Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez and the Manchester City superstar will play no part tonight.

Uncapped James Maddison and Fikayo Tomori are in England’s squad tonight while John Stones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Callum Hudson-Odoi were also recalled by Southgate.


The England boss confirmed yesterday he would name a ‘very young line-up’ against Montenegro.

“The line-up against Spain [in October 2018] was one of the youngest for decades and I think we are going to be even younger than that,” said Southgate.

“That obviously has some weaknesses, but it has some enormous strengths as well in terms of the enthusiasm, energy, motivation. And I think it’s a team that will excite people.”

Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea’s Mason Mount and Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund start tonight in England’s youngest side in 60 years.
