Montenegro vs England
England will face Montenegro on Monday evening in what will no doubt be a volatile atmosphere.
Gareth Southgate’s side got their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign off to a perfect start last Friday as they smashed Czech Republic 5-0 at Wembley.
Meanwhile, Montenegro drew 1-1 with Bulgaria, meaning England are currently top of Group A.
The Three Lions should have no problem seeing off 46th ranked Montenegro but their home advantage may have some sway on the tie.
Heading into the game it is understood that Callum Hudson-Odoi will make his first ever England start.
If he does so it means he has started for his country before doing so for Chelsea in the Premier League.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to make his first England start against Montenegro tonight, before he’s started a Premier League game for Chelsea, Sky Sports News understands.

Alli on England’s progression
Ahead of the game, Dele Alli has been speaking about England’s progression.
The midfielder believes England have the capability to become the best team in the world:
“We want to be the No1 team and to do that you have to be at it in every game and when you come away you have to prove yourself every time.
“We believe we can be the best in the world. Everyone will have their opinions but the work we’ve been putting in is to achieve that.
“There’s a long way to go, a lot of work to be done, but we are heading in the right direction.”As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Given the amount of young talent at Southgate’s disposal, it is easy to see why Alli has said view.
Alli is, however, an injury doubt for the Montenegro game, so too is Jordan Henderson.
Jordan Henderson, Dele Alli & Jadon Sancho are reportedly injury doubts for England’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Montenegro tonight.
