After a successful 5-0 victory against Czech Republic on Friday, we look ahead to tonight’s match as England take on Montenegro.
Who is predicted to start for the Three Lions? Here are StoryHub’s Frankie Turner’s potential ins and outs for tonight’s starting 11.
One change known for certain is a starting spot for Chelsea youngster, Callum Hudson-Odoi. After making his England first-team debut on Friday coming on for Raheem Sterling, his impressive performance, and injury to Jordan Sancho, has earned him his spot.
With Dele Alli and Jordan Henderson facing fitness tests ahead of tonight, there is a chance of starts for Declan Rice and James Ward-Prowse.
Below is the predicted starting 11 to face Montenegro:
The Talking Points:
- Michael Keane
After choosing to represent England over his native Republic of Ireland back when he was a part of the Manchester United set up, Michael Keane’s recent run of form earned him a starting spot in the game against Czech Republic.
After a strong performance, he is expected to start again against Montenegro.
- Declan Rice
Also making the decision to play for England over the Republic of Ireland, 20-year-old Declan Rice has been producing performances impressing fans and Gareth Southgate alike.
After coming on in the 63rd minute for Dele Alli against Czech Republic, could the game against Montenegro be his chance to start for his country?
- Callum Hudson-Odoi
At just 18 years of age, Chelsea youngster and England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to make his first full England debut tonight, BEFORE even making a start for Chelsea.
He replaced Raheem Sterling on Friday night at Wembley and produced an impressive performance, as well as playing a part in Czech Republic’s own goal that made the final scoreline 5-0.
