5-1 the final score. Disappointing performance to say the least, but it is what it is. Missing Jovetic is always a huge blow for us and having an unfit Savic didn't help ether, who undoubtedly had his worst performance for the NT. Many of our other players are not even playing for their respective club teams, so to expect them to just turn it on against one of the best sides in the world atm, was a big ask.

The next two qualifiers are crucial, home to Kosovo and away to the Czech Republic. The English FA are now complaining about racist abuse from our fans against some of their black players, so let's see if they're will be any fines/penalties. Personally I think Southgate and co. should just mind their own business.

Beautiful goal by Vesovic, btw



Vešović opčinjen Engleskom: Djeluju kao da hodaju, odjednom reaguju, drago mi je što sam to doživio

"Na terenu djeluju kao da hodaju, kao da ne trče, ali zna se ko šta radi. Odjednom reaguju, nevjerovatnu brzinu i promjenu smjera pokažu", istakao je fudbaler Legije



Marko Vešović "zapalio" je stadion pod Goricom pogotkom za 1:0, ali je na kraju bio impresioniran izdanjem Engleske.

"Na terenu djeluju kao da hodaju, kao da ne trče, ali zna se ko šta radi. Odjednom reaguju, nevjerovatnu brzinu i promjenu smjera pokažu. Drago mi je što sam doživio to, kao kompjuteri su, programirani od malena. To je već neki drugi sistem. Odmjerili smo snage sa njima, ostaje žal zbog prvog dijela, ali sigurno nismo tražili bodove u meču sa Englezima. Imamo ostale rivale, koji su po našoj mjeri i sa njima treba da se borimo za drugo mjesto", rekao je Vešović.

Utisak je da bi naš tim možda bolje prošao rezultatski da nije prilično lako ispustio gol prednosti.

"Gorčina je u nama poslije dva jeftino primljena gola. Imali su dominaciju, ali nisu imali šansi do tih golova u prvom poluvremenu. U drugom dijelu već je do izražaja došla njihova klasa, individualizam. Još je jači utisak kad si na terenu, pored njih. Ne treba da očajavamo, oni će sigurno biti prvi u grupi i mi treba da tražimo šansu protiv drugih rivala".

Fudbaler Legije se nada da će reprezentativci spremniji dočekati junske duele protiv Kosova i Češke.

"Mnogi igrači su izašli iz povreda, neki ne igraju u klubovima. Nismo bili u optimalnom stanju pred ovako važne utakmice. Fizički je to došlo do izražaja. Nadam se da ćemo biti spremniji i osvojiti još važnih bodova protiv Kosova i Češke", istakao je jedini strijelac crnogorske reprezentacije u meču sa Englezima.

Savić: Radije ću igrati sa ovim momcima, nego sa nekim prepotentnim Englezima

"Neki igrači koji su uspjeli u velikim klubovima ponašaju se kao kapiten Liverpula Džordan Henderson, koji je našem igraču nakon jednog povlačenja za dres rekao da će mu ga dati poslije utakmice. To je oholo i ružno i morao sam da mu skrenem pažnju da su dovoljno kvalitetni da ne moraju da se tako ponašaju", kazao je Savić



Više od ubjedljivog poraza Stefana Savića zaboljelo je ružno ponašanje veziste Engleske Džordana Hendersona, koji je omalovažavao jednog našeg igrača.

"Svi znamo da su mnogo veća reprezentacija od nas, ali se nekad osjećam ružno što se bavim ovim sportom. Neki igrači koji su uspjeli u velikim klubovima ponašaju se kao kapiten Liverpula Džordan Henderson, koji je našem igraču nakon jednog povlačenja za dres rekao da će mu ga dati poslije utakmice. To je oholo i ružno i morao sam da mu skrenem pažnju da su dovoljno kvalitetni da ne moraju da se tako ponašaju. Mislim da su shvatili tu poruku. Fudbal je lijepa igra i treba poštovati protivnika. Ponosni smo i uvijek bih volio da igram sa ovom ekipom, nego sa nekim prepotentnim igračima iz protivničkog tabora, kao što je to bio slučaj večeras", istakao je kapiten Crne Gore.

Naša reprezentacija nije mogla da parira mnogo jačem rivalu, ali je utisak da je rezultat na kraju bio previsok.

"Bilo je lijepo dok je trajalo, dok smo imali snage. Nosila nas je podrška sa tribina. I prva utakmica nas je dosta istošila i fizički i emotivno. Nažalost znate situaciju naših igrača u klubovima, da mnogi ne igraju i osjetilo se fizičkim padom u nastavku i na kraju previsokim rezultatom", izjavio je Savić.

Stub odbrane "sokolova" i dalje vjeruje u plasman na Evropsko prvenstvo. Naša selekcija će 7. juna ugostiti Kosovo, a tri dana kasnije gostuje Češkoj.

"Ne predajemo se. Od starta smo znali da je Engleska favorit. Treba dići glavu. Treba da dođemo spremni na utakmice sa Kosovom i Češkom, koje su krucijalne u ovim kvalifikacijama".

Štoper Atletiko Madrida je poslije pauze zbog povrede rizikovao i večeras pokušao da pomogne saigračima.

"Jedva sam izdržao utakmicu. Bukvalno sam izašao na teren, iako nisam trenirao 15 dana. Bog me pogledao pa se nisam povrijedio, sve je prošlo kako treba", kazao je Savić.

England to report racist abuse of players in Montenegro



Raheem Sterling and Callum Hudson-Odoi condemned the "unacceptable" racist abuse of England players during their 5-1 win in Montenegro.

Racist chanting was directed at a number of England players, including Danny Rose, during the Euro 2020 qualifier in Podgorica.

Manager Gareth Southgate said the incidents will be reported to Uefa.

"It is unacceptable," Southgate told BBC 5 Live. "I definitely heard abuse of Danny Rose when he got booked."

He added: "There's no doubt in my mind it happened. I know what I heard. We have to make sure our players feel supported, they know the dressing room is there and we as a group of staff are there for them.

"We have to report it through the correct channels. It is clear that so many people have heard it and we have to continue to make strides in our country and trust the authorities to take the right action."

What happened?

After only six minutes, BBC Radio 5 Live commentator Ian Dennis said he heard racist chants when Tottenham left-back Rose was in possession. BBC football correspondent John Murray also said he heard the chanting throughout the game and spoke to pitch-side photographers who described the abuse the England players received as "disgusting".

Sterling scored England's fifth goal in the 81st minute and celebrated by putting his hands to his ears, a gesture he later said was a response to the racist abuse.

In injury time Rose was booked following a strong challenge on Aleksandar Boljevic, with more racist chants aimed at the 28-year-old.

It is not the first time Rose has faced this situation on international duty.

He was racially abused in Serbia in an under-21 game in 2012.Serbia's FA were fined 65,000, with their under-21s having to play a game behind closed doors.
Sterling calls for a 'real punishment'

Sterling called on football's authorities to take "a proper stance" and crack down on the racist abuse.

"A couple of idiots ruined a great night and it is a real sad thing to hear," Sterling told BBC Radio 5 Live. "It's a real sad situation we are talking about after a great win.

"I don't think it was just one or two people that heard it, it was the whole bench. There should be a real punishment for this, not just the two or three people who were doing it - it needs to be a collective thing.

"This place holds 15,000. The punishment should be, whatever nation it is, if your fans are chanting racist abuse then it should be the whole stadium so no-one can come and watch.

"When the ban is lifted, the fans will think twice. They all love football, they all want to come and watch their nation so it will make them think twice before doing something silly like that."

Describing his reaction to his goal, Sterling added: "It was one of those where it was to let them know, you are going to need to tell me more than that we are black and what we resemble to affect us.

"That was the message and give them something to talk about.

"We can only bring awareness and light to the situation. It's time for the people in charge to put a real stamp on it.

"In England we have a diverse country and lots of different faces. I can only do so much; the FA can only do so much. The people in charge need to make a proper stance."
I heard fans making monkey noises - Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi, 18, who was making his first international start, told BeIn Sports: "I don't think discrimination should be anywhere - we are equal.

"When you are hearing stuff like that from the fans, it is not right and it is unacceptable. Hopefully Uefa deal with it properly. When me and Rosey went over there, they were saying, 'ooh aa aa' monkey stuff and we just have to keep our heads and keep a strong mentality.

"Hopefully Rosey is OK too. We will discuss it and have a chat. He has a strong mentality and is a strong guy so hopefully everything will be good.

"It is not right at all - I was enjoying the game too. We just have to take the win and go back home."

England's Declan Rice, who was also making his first Three Lions start, was sitting next to Rose in the dressing room after the game and said the incidents affected everyone in the camp.

"It is clearly unacceptable and it is up to the FA and Uefa to deal with it," said Rice. "It is not right, we came here to play a football match, we have been respectful and they need to show respect to us.

"Danny was disappointed. We talk all the time about kicking it out of the game but when is it actually going to stop? It is happening all the time and there needs to be more punished for it.

"We need to be doing more. I don't know what else we can do, there are so many campaigns saying 'kick it out' but then you come to places like this and it happens again, you are back to the start."
'A blight on football and society' - analysis

BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty

England's outstanding win in Montenegro should be a cause for celebration - instead it was overshadowed by the shameful racist abuse aimed at Southgate's players.

Those close to the pitch in Podgorica delivered grim reports of what was being suffered by players in what is unquestionably an unforgiving, hostile and unpleasant arena.

Sterling's cupped ear response towards the Montenegro fans after scoring was revealing. It was clearly a pointed response to what he had been hearing on the terraces in this small arena.

It brought a furious response, with more chants and an object being thrown on to the pitch which was retrieved by Hudson-Odoi.

The most audible chanting came late on when Rose was booked for a late challenge and monkey noises could be heard from the press box situated in among the Montenegro supporters.

It was disgraceful, unacceptable and provided a sour backdrop and unsavoury conclusion to what should have been, when viewed in the football context, a highly satisfactory night for Southgate and England after recording back-to-back five-goal victories for the first time in more than 30 years.

Now is the time for Uefa to come up with the punishment that fits the crime, not simply heavy fines but threats of exclusion from tournaments.

This should have been solely about another outstanding England win - instead a light must also be shone on the dreadful undercurrent of racist abuse that still comes out and puts a blight on football and society.
'Uefa must take strong and swift action' - what other people said

Sports Minister Mims Davies: "Rightly very proud of the England players tonight - a fantastic effort and cracking result - in face of absolutely unacceptable racist abuse. Uefa must quickly investigate then take strong and swift action."

Former England striker Ian Wright, speaking to ITV: "It will probably go to Uefa and they'll be fined a pittance and we'll get the same thing again here the next time or somewhere else in Europe. It's not going to stop them."

Former England midfielder Joe Cole, also on ITV: "We need to shine a light on it. As a nation we need to take a lead on it. It's out of order and England players shouldn't have to deal with it."

Former England defender Danny Mills on BBC Radio 5 Live: "Raheem Sterling has taken a lot of stick from the crowd so why can't he celebrate like that? One week we want players to show passion and emotion and the next we are criticising their reaction when they are getting abused all game."
