Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott is happy to be back in action for England.

Lescott barely had a tackle to make on Friday night as England strolled to an 8-0 win in San Marino, but he insists he is prepared to do combat with Montenegro tomorrow night.

"I haven't been in (the City team) as much as I would have liked this season, but I played against Barnsley, so my sharpness wasn't too far away, and San Marino was a massive game for me to be involved in," the former Everton defender said.

"I did my best in training. The manager feels he can trust us all. My experience of dealing with difficult opponents at Euro 2012 can definitely help against Montenegro."
