The Montenegro press are in critical mood after their national team failed to find a way past Liechtenstein in last night's goalless draw. "Shock, agony, knockout – chances are now half of what they were before," is the headline in newspaper Vijesti.

"For some this is embarrassment, for some bad luck or misfortune – but it is not important. The only thing that matters is the result and with just one point, Montenegro is far from EURO 2016," they add. 

"Two dropped points against Liechtenstein cannot be recouped anywhere. Even if we beat Austria on Sunday, we will still be two points short," stated Arena. "It is a big question – can our players regroup for a much harder test in Vienna?"

Montenegro coach Branko Brnović has shown his hand early, today announcing the XI who will start against Liechtenstein in Group G tomorrow evening, and causing a stir by leaving out a number of big names.

"I plan to rest Mirko Vučinić, Marko Baša, Stefan Savić and Vladimir Volkov so they are fresh for the game against Austria [on Sunday]," explained Brnović. "However, it does not mean that we underestimate Liechtenstein. On the contrary, we respect them a great deal, as we know that they recently surprised a strong team like Slovakia. I believe in all my players. They are not in the national team by accident, but because of their qualities."

Montenegro XI to face Liechtenstein: Vukašin Poleksić; Savo Pavičević, Marko Simić, Žarko Tomašević, Milan Jovanović; Elsad Zverotić, Simon Vukčević; Fatos Bećiraj, Vladimir Jovović, Stevan Jovetić; Dejan Damjanović.
