Montenegro fans: Invaded the pitch after England drew 2-2 in Podgorica in Octobe

A pitch invasion after a 2-2 draw with England in October 2011 cost Montenegro £30,000, and there have been fines for other incidents in recent months.

Flares were thrown during games against San Marino and the Czech Republic, while a seat was hurled at Poland's goalkeeper in September.

Montenegro manager Branko Brnovic said on the eve of the game there is no reason for England to feel intimidated.

And the FA's president Dejan Savicevic has appealed for calm, saying: "I'd like to appeal to our fans to cheer and support our players in a sporting manner and in the right fashion.

"I'm saying this because, in the last year and a half, our association has had to pay penalties of up to 90,000 euros after incidents at this ground."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
