England are intimidated - Brnovic

Branko Brnovic has claimed that England are scared of his Montenegro team.

England face the Montenegrins in a crucial World Cup qualifier tonight in Podgorica.

"We respect and appreciate the English team, but even more so we appreciate our own qualities," said Brnovic. "I'm sure we'll make the most of them.

"I've read statements from some English players about the way the pitch will look. As far as I know, the English have always favoured long passes, so who should complain about this? Us, with [Mirko] Vucinic, [Stevan] Jovetic, [Marko] Basa, or England?

"They're also intimidated by our fans. All these stories are coming from their side. That shows they're more scared of this game than we are."
