Adrian Chiles introduces live coverage of England’s crucial penultimate World Cup qualifier against Montenegro at Wembley.
 
Roy Hodgson’s men have the opportunity to win Group H and qualify for next year’s World Cup in Brazil if they overcome the Montenegrins and then Poland in their final game four days later.
 
Montenegro held England to a 1-1 draw in Podgorica in March, when Wayne Rooney’s early header opened the scoring but Dejan Damjanovic scrambled home the equaliser with 13 minutes to go. 
 
After recent criticism for the way they played in drawing 0-0 with the Ukraine in Kiev, England will hope to produce a top-level performance against the team which is third in their group.
 
For Montenegro, new Manchester City signing Stevan Jovetic and Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic will hope to unlock England’s defence and improve their own chances of qualification for the World Cup finals.
 
Joining Adrian in the studio at Wembley are Lee Dixon and Roy Keane, while commentary comes from Clive Tyldesley and Andy Townsend.
