The Montenegrins host England at Podgorica Stadium aware that only a defeat of the Three Lions followed by a victory over Switzerland on Tuesday will be enough to secure their place at next summer's tournament.

Juventus forward Vucinic is wary of Rooney, who has been in superb goalscoring form this season, firing home 11 goals for club and country.

"Rooney has everything," Vucinic said. "He can run and shoot. Every chance he gets, he scores. That's the most important thing. But he can't do anything without the ball at his feet. We have to try and stop him from getting it."
