  1. England 4 Montenegro 1. No indication at half-time that things would be this easy, but the Three Lions march on and are closing on Brazil 2014.

  2. 90+3

    GOAL ENGLAND - STURRIDGE. No mistake from the spot, with Sturridge rolling the ball into the back of the net. Poleksic goes early, and the wrong way.

  3. 90+2

    Vukcevic towards the box, but a poor delivery is cut out by Cahill and Milner can lead the England charge. He finds Sturridge, who skips past Kecojevic and is cut down from behind. Penalty to England.

  4. 90+1

    Sturridge operating on halfway now. He hasn't had too many sniffs of goal tonight. Rooney then concedes a free-kick and England will have to retreat.

  5. Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  6. 90

    Baines goes long onto the head of Welbeck. Sturridge then flicks on towards the Manchester United forward, but the visitors have enough men back.

  7. 89

    Hodgson still down on the sidelines. He isn't going to move until he has the points in the bag. As it stands, England are about to guarantee themselevs a top-two finish in Group H.

  8. 88

    Playing out time now. England have no need to go chasing a fourth, Montenegro accept the game has gone. Might as well end proceedings now.

  9. 87

    Milner given a late run-out as he replaces skipper Gerrard. Job done for England now. Rooney will captain them to the final whistle.

  10. 86

    Important touch from Jagielka takes the ball away from Damjanovic. Montenegro caught with men upfield, and Rooney springs Sturridge in behind. Again, the flag goes up.

  11. 85

    A Cahill clearance breaks kindly back to Hart. He is able to bowl the ball out to Jagielka. England can't make headway down their left. Damjanovic still chasing hard, and wins a throw.

  12. 84

    Hart organises his wall. Strange set-piece, which is touched a couple of times before being rolled to the edge of the box. Not the slickest of training ground moves.

  13. 83

    Welbeck, now on the right, doing his bit for the collective cause as he chases back. Gerrard doesn't help matters as he concedes a free-kick 30 yards from goal for a trip on Vukcevic.

  14. 82

    Wilshere looking to get involved. He will want to earn a starting berth for Tuesday, but can't see Hodgson changing much. England took their time to get going, but have been the better side.

  15. 81

    Another change. Jovetic makes way for Kasalica. No need for the Manchester City to be out there any more now that the game has gone.

  16. 80

    Townsend gets a deserved standing ovation as he makes his way from the field. Wilshere sent on in his place to see England over the line.

  17. 79

    Breathing space again for England. That should be it now. Surely they won't let things slip from here? Cahill has taken a knock to his back.

  18. 78

    GOAL ENGLAND - TOWNSEND. Dream debut for the Tottenham man. Townsend slips around Vukcevic and lets fly from 20 yards out. A curling, dipping effort flashes into the bottom corner.

  19. 77

    Rooney takes the ball off Sturridge's toe. He is eager to be involved as much as possible. Good to see as England need their experienced heads to step up to the plate.

  20. 76

    Carrick into Welbeck. England looking to keep the ball. Montenegro not chasing too hard. Rooney finding space from deep, but fails to work Poleksic from 25 yards out.
