England must score in the second half of their World Cup qualifier against Montenegro to keep on track for a guaranteed place in Rio next summer after a goalless first half at Wembley.

Ukraine's 1-0 win over Poland has seen them jump above Roy Hodgson's team in Group H and in pole position to qualify, with only San Marino left to play.

A draw against Montenegro will leave England likely chasing a route through the playoffs, while a defeat tonight would all but end their hopes of involvement in Brazil in 2014.
