England capped off a very productive international break with a well-deserved 5-1 win away in Montenegro.

Gareth Southgate's side have won their first two games in Euro 2020 qualifying following their 5-0 victory over Czech Republic on Friday evening.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Declan Rice were handed their first starts for the Three Lions.

England fell a goal behind thanks to Marko Vesovic's well taken curling effort, but the Three Lions then took the game by the scruff of the neck.

Everton's Michael Keane nodded home his first England goal off of Ross Barkley's free-kick 13 minutes later.

Barkley then scored either side of half-time to put the Three Lions firmly in the driving seat. Are you watching Maurizio Sarri?

Harry Kane then added a fourth after an excellent counterattack, with Raheem Sterling setting up the England captain.

Sterling then got on the score sheet himself after an excellent through ball from Jordan Henderson, making it four in his last two England games for the Manchester City man.

The match was sadly marred by racial abuse aimed at Danny Rose, Hudson-Odoi and Sterling throughout the game from sections of the Montenegro crowd.

UEFA need to act and implement strict punishments.
