International football again, tonight it’s the Euro 2020 qualifier between England and Montenegro, many Premier League and some English Football League players have been called up.
The Three Lions will be without Marcus, Rashford Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabian Delph, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, John Stones and Luke Shaw, all due to injury.
The game will kick off at 7:45pm and can be watched live on ITV, coverage starting from 7pm.
Gareth Southgate said prior to the game, as quoted by BBC Sport about the last time they were in Montenegro: When England played in the city in 2013, players were verbally abused and targeted with missiles.
“That is the sort of challenge our players have faced many times before.
About the Czech Republic game, he added: “I know the passion the supporters have for their country and of course that gives a huge lift to their own team,” Southgate added. “We have to make sure our discipline is right and we focus on what we can affect.
“We are guests here, so we will be very respectful about how we speak about the opposition. Our players have to be prepared for hostile environments, whether it is in England for their clubs or travelling around the world.”
