Last Updated: 26/03/13 at 22:28 Post Comment

JOE HART: Not that much to do before break. Busy afterwards and some outstanding saves. 8.

GLEN JOHNSON: Went close as the visitors tore at their opponents from first whistle. Booked later and struggled. 7.

ASHLEY COLE: Steady display down the left. Happy to adopt a cautious approach, although not given much protection when going got tough. 7.

STEVEN GERRARD: Feeds off the vibrancy so evident in many of his younger team-mates but still gives the ball away too frequently. Almost won it at the death. 6.

JOLEON LESCOTT: Solid defensive performance. On this evidence not easy to understand how he struggles for a game at Manchester City. 7.

CHRIS SMALLING: Another central defender who doesn't fulfil the role much for his club. Effective here for a while although under pressure for a bit. 7.

JAMES MILNER: Gave England energy down the right and did his share of defending with soem timely defensive interventions. 7.

MICHAEL CARRICK: Kept the visitors ticking overin the first half but then lost control of the game as Montenegro surged forward. 6.

DANNY WELBECK: Another excellent effort from the striker whose movement caused massive problems. Harshly booked when he should have been awarded a penalty. 8.

WAYNE ROONEY: Epitomised England's fast start, hitting the post with an excellent chip before netting his 35th international goal. Faded after the break.7.

TOM CLEVERLEY (off 78): Extended ever-present record this season but not one of his best displays. 6.

ASHLEY YOUNG (on 78): Attacking invention helped stop the slide backwards and gave England impetus. 7.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
