Event: World Cup 2014 Qualifier


Montenegro 1-1 England

Another disappointing evening for the Three Lions saw them fail to beat Montenegro and assume first place in their qualifying group.

It started brilliantly for England, with Wayne Rooney hitting the post before scoring just four minutes later—a back-post header following awful marking by Volkov.

At the half it was easy for Roy Hodgson's side, but in the second half Montenegro turned it on. Wave after wave of attack and finally the breakthrough came.

Damjanovic poked home one of the messiest goals you'll ever see, but they all count.
