Vucinic 'super confident' for England test

Vucinic, 27, missed training on Monday with a hamstring injury, but he is hoping to take his place in attack for Montenegro on Tuesday night as they bid to remain top of their Euro 2012 qualification group.

Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been linked with a move for Vucinic, who made headlines after his goal and celebration in the 1-0 win over Switzerland on Friday, and he has suggested he would welcome the chance to play in England.

"I am very happy there is a lot of interest from the Premier League, and I hope to do my best and have a great game," he said. "The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world. I just have to keep playing my football in the best possible manner.

"We will do our best against England, who are naturally one of the great teams in the world. We give it our best and wait to see what happens."

Vucinic said last year that he had chosen to remain with Roma despite interest from the Premier League.
