Montenegro stays ahead of England in qualifying
Mirko Vucinic struck a late winner to give 10-man Montenegro a
priceless 1-0 victory over Moldova in World Cup qualifying on
Friday, ensuring that his side stays top of Group H ahead of its
showdown with England next week.
Montenegro’s Milorad Pekovic was dismissed for a second yellow
card in the 61st minute but it didn’t prevent his side taking the
points after Vucinic volleyed home in the 78th at Zimbru
With 13 points on the board from five games, the victory
maintained Montenegro’s two-point lead over second-place England,
which romped to an 8-0 victory over San Marino.
The top two sides meet in Podgorica on Tuesday for a game that
could go a long way to deciding which team qualifies automatically
for next year’s tournament in Brazil.
