European Championship Qualifying Group G

Montenegro V England
19:00 +00.00, October 7, 2011
Stadion Pod Goricom


As it is the International Week, there will not be any Premier League game playing this week.
So i will like to warm up by writing a simple preview of England's International game. 


Overview


England still unbeaten in Group G, having 5 wins and 2 draws, ended their last game with a  1-0 win over Wales as Ashley Young scored the winner at Wembley.
Montenegro with 3 wins 2 draws and 1 loss, ended their last game with a 2-1 lost against Wales.


Montenegro are pretty strong at home having played 3 games, winning 2 and drawing 1. Conceding just 3 goals in the 6 games of Euro Qualifying is amazing. England will most probably have a tough time breaking down Montenegro's defence. Despite have good defence, Montenegro have problems in their striking department scoring just 5 goals in 6 games, where their counterpart have a total tally of 15 goals in 7 games. Montenegro will be heavily relying on their star striker Mirko Vucinic to provide the goals to have any chance of scoring against England.


For England, Chris Smalling is out with a groin injury, so the possible starting line up would most probably be Ashley Cole, John Terry, Gary Cahill, who is the preferred choice for Fabio Capello. 
And the Right back slot would most probably be Micah Richards.Controlling the midfield would probably be Garath Barry, Steward Downing, Theo Walcott. The final slot could be Frank Lampard who scored a hat-trick the last weekend with Chelsea 1-5 win over Bolton. Scott Parker might come on for Lampard in the second half.


Upfront would be Wayne Rooney, possibly partner with his Manchester United teammate Danny Welbeck.


Verdict


The last time England played Montenegro, it was a 0-0 stalemate. England needing just a win to qualify , I expect this game to be a low scoring draw or England just edging a win.




Prediction:  
Montenegro 0 - 1 England
