Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic puts all the pressure on England ahead of Friday's crunch World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

Montenegro striker Stevan Jovetic has insisted that all the pressure is on their opponents England ahead of Friday's pivotal World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

England hold just a one-point advantage over both Montenegro and Ukraine ahead of their final two qualifiers, with just a single automatic spot available for next summer's tournament.

He told The Independent: "England are the favourites because they have so many good players and they are a huge nation but we have played them three times and shown we can compete with them.

"Yes, I think they have more pressure than us because they are expected to win, and expect to win.

"We have seen neighbouring countries like Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia reach the finals in the past and now we want to get there. It is important not just for football reasons but also for the prestige of the country."

The Manchester City forward is likely to lead the line on his own against England, with strike partner Mirko Vucinic struggling after picking up a thigh problem.
