Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic says he'll be too strong for England's defence tonight.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott and Manchester United's Chris Smalling will face the Montenegro forward.

"I certainly do see that as a source of weakness because, if they do not play for their own clubs, I don't see why their national coach should pick them," the 29-year-old said.

"I'm sure the match would be better and more interesting if (Ferdinand or Terry) played because they are certainly among the best defenders in the world today."
