England are now top of Group A after Bulgaria and Montenegro drew 1-1 in their first game.

Gareth Southgate will, however, be without the likes of Eric Dier, Marcus Rashford and Trent-Alexander-Arnold for Monday’s game as they have all returned to their respective clubs due to injury.

Montenegro coach’s assessment of England

Despite losing some key men, England should still be very confident heading into the game.

Montenegro are ranked 46th in the world and will probably not cause England to many problems.

This is something Montenegro’s coach agrees with as he claims he cannot find any weakness in this England side.

When asked about finding a weakness, he stated:

“I’m really trying but I can’t.

“We in the coaching team who deal with the players are realistic.

“Things that happen in the past are just nice results for Montenegro, tomorrow (Monday) we will play a match with totally different players, new coaches, with different capabilities and different ideas from both teams.

“The model and the way the (England) national team plays is something special.”As quoted by the Telegraph.

Harry Maguire was previously labelled England’s weak link by Czech Republic forward, Matey Vydra.

That did not work out so well for Vydra though as Maguire would take the forward out with a crunching kick when his side were 5-0 down.
