England boss Gareth Southgate says his side for Monday’s European Qualifier in Montenegro will again have a youthful look – despite the prospect of a hostile environment.

Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole were verbally abused and targeted with missiles when England travelled to Podgorica for a World Cup qualifier in 2013 and a similarly tough atmosphere is expected.

The current England side beat the Czech Republic 5-0 on Friday night at Wembley with Jadon Sancho starting and his fellow top prospects Declan Rice and Callum Hudson-Odoi coming off the bench.

And, asked if he would hesitate to play his young stars in less welcoming surrounds, Southgate said: “No hesitation.

“This is part of their education and to be a top team we’ve got to adapt to every environment we go into.

“Friday at Wembley is always a different experience to going away from home in a qualifier, which is always difficult.

“But the only way the team can learn and improve is by going through these experiences.”
