Montenegro forward Dejan Damjanovic wants more respect from England when they face each other in the Euro 2012 qualifier on Friday.

Montenegro frontman Dejan Damjanovic has criticised the England players for not showing "enough respect" when the teams first came head to head at Wembley last year.

The two sides meet again in Podgorica on Friday for the Group G Euro 2012 qualifier off the back of the 0-0 draw in 2010.

"At Wembley, they didn't play seriously against us," Damjanovic said. "England didn't show us enough respect.

"They probably thought they would beat us easily but, to be honest, they played pretty badly and we were unbelievable. Maybe they thought the game would be easy.

"If we defend well we could do something special against England but, this time, England will take us totally seriously."

England need one point to qualify for the next stage of the European Championship, having played one game more than Montenegro.
