England coach Gary Neville has called on Roy Hodgson's side to go for the three points against World Cup qualifying Group H table-toppers Montenegro on 26th March.

He said: "I have never looked at any game, either for Manchester United or England, and said I will play for a draw - and I never will.

"That is not the English mentality. We are not Italians, who can grind things out and be cagey for an entire game. We want to be on the front foot. Our mentality must always be to try and win.

"I have watched a lot of Montenegro's games in the last couple of months and it will be a hostile atmosphere, as it always is in Eastern Europe.

"It never changes. They are really passionate about their countries. You are talking about countries who have had hostilities around there for 20-odd years. You can feel the passion. There is a fighting spirit amongst them. It will be the same in Montenegro.

"You have to handle the atmosphere in any away ground. It is the first thing you say; let's kill the crowd. Keep the ball and get a goal."
