England head into their second game of Euro 2020 qualifying as heavy favourites, with anything less than a victory over Montenegro on Monday  deemed to be a poor result.

Montenegro vs England : Match Preview

Despite an energy-sapping three-hour flight to Montenegro’s capital of Podgorica, England will be highly confident of claiming another three points and maintaining their position at the top of Group A.

They have continued their brilliant form from the World Cup last year, and will no doubt be using this match as preparation for this summer’s Nations League finals.

The Three Lions have won their last four fixtures, including triumphs over both Croatia and Spain, so another win here against Montenegro is to be expected.

The one dilemma Southgate faces heading into the clash is who will replace the injured Dier in central midfield.

Ross Barkley came on to replace the Tottenham midfielder on Friday, but he also had the option of giving Declan Rice his first start in an England shirt and elected to use both players in the XI against Montenegro.

Southgate will also use Sancho’s fitness issues to integrate Callum Hudson-Odoi into the starting XI.

“We’ve got competition for places and I think attacking players mature very young, and they can go in very young,” said Southgate.
