Montenegro mayhem is nothing new for England as Roy's boys return to Podgorica
…” class=”blkBorder” />
Back again: England have played in Podgorica before, in a qualifier for Euro 2012…
A picture of Bent in action features prominently in the programme for tomorrow's game but these days he cannot hold down at place at Aston Villa and among Roy Hodgson's big decisions ahead of his big night is who to pair with Rooney.
The stadium will rattle with noise. Pictures have been painted of a hostile reception from the local fans but if the last visit is anything to go by this will be nothing more sinister than a spirited reception for a newly-independent nation.
…and the home fans celebrated on the pitch after watching their team secure a draw
As so often in this part of the world, the football team has given the former Yugoslav states a platform to show who they are and what they stand form.
The people of Montenegro provide a warm welcome. The fervour inside the stadium is because this little team is proudly punching above its weight.
Scoring for fun: England will find it much tougher in Montenegro than they did in San Marino on Friday
Teams emerge from a tunnel in the corner of this 12,000-capactiy ground, beneath the noisiest of the supporters.
The game in October 2011 culminated in a pitch invasion but this was due mainly to the euphoria of the team's progress into the play-offs.
What Hodgson can be sure of is that it will be uncomfortable and many of those in his team were not on the pitch the last time.
Red mist: It was in Montenegro in 2011 that Wayne Rooney was sent off for kicking out at Miodrag Dzudovoic
Branko Brnovic's team will be disciplined and tight at the back, reliant upon the star strikers Stevan Jovetic and Mirko Vucinic to provide the magic up front, perhaps pinch a goal which will turn the pressure on England.
How can they can cope That will be the test.
Rooney's red is a warning to them all. They must manage their frustration and they must think clearly amid the din.
