ENGLAND’S raggle-taggle crew of enthusiastic amateur footballers believe they can hold the legendary Montenegro to a draw.
England captain Steven Gerrard, granted leave from his job as a postman, said: “They’ve got big names like Damjanovic and Boskovic, while we’re fielding Rooney who’s usually on nightclub doors Friday nights, but we won’t let their reputation scare us.
We beat the Faroe Islands 3-0 in 2007, we beat Lichtenstein 2-1 last year, and I fancy adding Montenegro to our collection of giant-killing scalps. Come on, England!
Part-time manager Roy Hodgson, better known for his stint in Last of the Summer Wine, said: Montenegro are used to a silky-smooth pitch, not the tough-as-old-boots turf at Wembley.
A draw against them would be like winning the World Cup for us.”
