England will host Montenegro at Wembley Stadium tonight in their penultimate European Qualifier.
It will be the Three Lions’ 1,000th men’s international match which will be highlighted in a number of ways throughout the match, including the notable contributions of former players and managers being recognised as well as the current players wearing individual ‘legacy numbers’ on their shirts.
Gareth Southgate’s side need just need just one point from their remaining two matches to seal a place in next summer’s European Championships.
They have dominated throughout these qualifiers, and have shown in previous encounters against Montenegro that they are more than capable of overshadowing them.
Here’s everything you need to know:
