Much of the pre-match talk has focused on Wayne Rooney - and whether he can keep his temper in check. Of course the reason why is because last time England faced Montenegro, the striker lashed out and got himself sent off for his troubles. Watch the incident here...

  • 10 min: Montenegro finally settling a little and go on the attack but England counter and a Gerrard pass nearly finds Cleverley breaking into the box.

  • The Independent's Sam Wallace is there at  the City Stadium. Here's what he makes of it so far...
    Montenegro national anthem extremely brooding, in a our-troops-are-massing-at-your-border type way. 9/10 for intimidation value Sam Wallace via Twitter at 8:00 PM

  • 15 min: Excellent pressure from Rooney and Montenegro gift the ball to Welbeck. The United man fails to take advantage when he should have done better.

  • 17 min: The home fans sound very organised - they appear to have some guy on the loud speaker geeing up the fans. Milner shoots across goal from just inside the box.

  • 20 min: Some good closing down and then England begin knocking it around. It breaks down though when Rooney tries a cheeky flick. The Montenegro fans fail to see the funny side though - and roundly boo the United striker.

  • 22 min: Montenegro win a corner and the volume goes up a notch. Vucinic hits it very deep and England win a goal-kick. Poor.

  • Rooney puts England ahead after 5 mins.
