Montenegro vs England: What can we expect?

Are we expecting too much of England after the astonishing result they pulled off in mid-week, or will they finally push on and gain top spot in Group H?

England go up against group leaders Montenegro tonight, with a win guaranteeing top place in the group after six games. 

With Roy Hodgson having three forwards in Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge all getting on the scoresheet in mid-week, what a great selection headache Hodgson has.

After England's 8-0 thrashing over a poor San Marino side, they'll go into the game full of confidence. Surely the team can only push on from now and go win a game expected by the majority of the English fans? 

Theo Walcott is looking like a doubt to make the squad and even the bench, giving his Arsenal teammate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain another opportunity to prove his worth as he tries to add to the goal he scored in mid-week. However, it is looking likely that Glen Johnson will return. 

This is going to be a much tougher opponent then many are predicting, as Montenegro are sitting top of Group H and they wouldn't be sitting top by mistake.

The game will be England's last until they face Moldova at Wembley in September, and they're looking to sign off temporarily with a bang, but can they really equal or better their result against San Marino?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see, but as always, England expects.
