England captain Steven Gerrard calls for calm heads when England travel to Montenegro on Tuesday night.

England captain Steven Gerrard has called for "calm" from the players ahead of their match against Montenegro on Tuesday.

The Three Lions travel to Podgorica to face the Balkan nation in their World Cup qualifying campaign, and Gerrard has urged all the players to keep their composure in what he thinks will be a "pressure situation".

"It's important we keep 11 men on the pitch because it will be a very difficult game," Gerrard told reporters.

"It's going to be a pressure situation and we don't need to give the referee any excuse to send any of us off or unnecessary yellow cards. It's important everyone takes responsibility and stays on the pitch.

"Montenegro will be trying to claim everything and intimidate the referee into making rash decisions."

Roy Hodgson's side beat San Marino 8-0 on Friday evening.
