We look at England's next Euro 2020 qualifying opponents Montenegro ahead of Monday's meeting in Podgorica.

England face Montenegro in Podgorica on Monday in European Championships qualifying following their opening 5-0 win over the Czech Republic on Friday.

Here's all you need to know about England's next opponents in Group A.

Form

The hosts have won two of their seven games this season - both against Lithuania in Nations League qualifying.

They drew 1-1 in Bulgaria on Friday, Stefan Mugosa opening the scoring before a late penalty denied Montenegro victory.

History

England have not played Montenegro since qualification for the 2014 World Cup but have only beaten them once in four attempts.

That was a 4-1 win at Wembley - with Wayne Rooney, Andros Townsend, a Branko Boskovic own goal and Daniel Sturridge's late penalty helping the Three Lions to a Wembley victory in 2013.

Manager

Ljubisa Tumbakovic has been in charge since 2016 and has won six league titles with hometown club Partisan Belgrade, where he began his playing career.

He won two Chinese Super League crowns with Shandong Luneng in 2006 and 2008, along with two Chinese FA Cups.

Players

Former Manchester City striker Stevan Jovetic, now at Monaco, and Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic are out injured.

Defender Adam Marusic is a Lazio regular but Montenegro are missing their star names.
