Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs, called up to replace Ashley Cole, joined in with the rest of the 22 players ahead of the Group H showdown at Wembley.

The England manager is without Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Glen Johnson because of long-term injuries, but Daniel Sturridge and Wayne Rooney return after missing the games against Ukraine and Moldova.

Joe Hart has come under scrutiny in recent weeks over his performances for Manchester City but he looked in confident mood during a practice session with the other goalkeepers, John Ruddy and Fraser Forster.

England go in to the final two games top of Group H one point ahead of Ukraine and Montenegro and will definitely qualify for Brazil 2014 if they beat both Montenegro and Poland next Tuesday.
