England confident ahead of Montenegro clash - Gerrard

England captain Steven Gerrard insists he and his teammates have an air of confidence ahead of Friday's crucial World Cup qualifier against Montenegro.

The Three Lions currently sit on top of Group in UEFA qualifying with two matches remaining and Gerrard suggests there is plenty of assurance around the squad that they will remain in that position in order to progress to Brazil 2014.

"There is a confidence in the squad," he said.

"We are not over-confident because we have respect for our opponents. They are good teams. But it's a huge boost to have the majority of lads available.

"Training has gone well and so has the preparation. That is why we are feeling the way we do."
