England still coming forward. Montenegro want this over!
That was Abraham's first senior international goal.
- GoalTammy AbrahamEngland
GOAL! Abraham gets in on the action as Chilwell and Sancho combine down the left to tee up the Chelsea man to slot home from close range.
TAA lets fly from 25 yards but sees his attempt hit into the turf before being deflected to safety.
Landmarks, trebles and off-field tussles aside - England WILL qualify for next summer's Euros tonight.
Indeed, Pickford made a super save in the first period but has been a spectator for the most part.
Montenegro with a bit of the ball. but it never looks like resulting in anything of note in the attacking third.

- OffVladimir JovovicMontenegro

MONTENEGRO CHANGE: Jankovic on for Jovovic.
Hadžibegić will be pleased his side have yet to ship any goals in this half. Still a long way to go though...
Maguire rises to meet a left-wing corner, but can't keep his header down.
England still rolling the ball about, occasionally upping the ante when they sense an opening. Plenty of young guns on there who should be wanting to impress though.

KICK OFF! Montenegro gets us back underway hoping to put up a better showing in this second period.
- End of 1st Half
HT: England 5-0 Montenegro. Ox, Kane (3) and Rashford on target.
STAT: England have scored five goals or more in five of their nine games in 2019.
Will we have a sixth before the break or is that just being greedy?
- GoalHarry KaneEngland
GOAL! It's a hat-trick in just 37 minutes for Kane. The striker's first touch to control TAA's cross is lovely and his reverse finish into the far corner is just too good.
HOME COMFORTS: England have won their last six home matches, but perhaps more impressively, the Three Lions are on a run of 17 straight victories in Euro/World Cup qualifiers. In that time they have plundered 55 goals and shipped just six. Looks like it's going to be another win here too.
- Yellow cardMarko VesovicMontenegro
England are running riot. A miscue in defence offers up another opening for Rashford, but his improvised back heel is well stopped by Mijatovic. He's been over-worked, played well and yet conceded four in half an hour!
- GoalMarcus RashfordEngland
GOAL! It's already four! Rashford picks up a rebound and smashes it into the corner after Maguire's close-range header had been superbly saved by Mijatovic.
Chilwell well worth a mention too...
More to come?
SAVE! Jordan Pickford is suddenly forced into action to push away Marko Simic's thumping header.
Kane is now joint sixth alongside Nat Lofthouse, Alan Shearer and Tom Finney on England's all-time top scorer list.
GOAL! It's two for Kane and three for England. The captain is given a free run to meet the left-wing corner and nod home his 30th goal for his country.
VIDEO: Kane makes it two. The hosts are already in cruise control.
STAT: Kane is now England’s joint ninth top goalscorer, alongside Vivian Woodward and Frank Lampard (both 29).
VIDEO: Ox's opener.
- GoalHarry KaneEngland
GOAL! Kane holds his ground inside the six-yard box to nod home Chilwell's free kick delivery from the left.
Another brilliant save from Mijatovic. England race forward on the break. The Ox feeds Rashford who sees a fizzing shot diverted over the bar by the keeper.
Thumbs up to the Ox.
What a save! Mijatovic somehow blocks Mount's close-range finish after Kane had failed to connect with a right-wing cross.
Over a year and a half since he last started for England due to injury and the Ox marks it with his first strike for his country since June 2017.
- GoalAlex Oxlade-ChamberlainEngland
GOAL! Oxlade-Chamberlain makes his mark as he takes down Chilwell's clipped pass and rifles it into the far corner.
Trent Alexander Arnold (TAA) hovers over a right-wing free kick but ends up whipping it straight into the hands of Mijatovic. England looking bright early doors though.
STAT: Montenegro are bidding for an unlikely first win in 10 Euro/World Cup qualifiers. They have lost on six occasions and have failed to net in their last four Euro qualifiers.
What a brilliant clearance. Sancho marauds down the right and rolls the ball into the six-yard box for Kane. It looks all set to be the opener, but Aleksandar Sofranac somehow adjusts his body to keep the ball away from the England skipper.
The Ox spins free down the right and floats over a cross towards Kane, but visiting keeper, Milan Mijatovic comes off his line to pluck it out of the air.
Expecting goals? You should be if England's strike-rate this year is anything to go by? Indeed, the Three Lions are averaging 3.4 goals per game in 2019 having netted 27 times in eight games. It is their highest tally since 1963 when they grabbed 32 in nine matches. England are only one goal behind their tally for 2018 (28 goals) and last scored 30 goals in a calendar year in 1982 (34 goals).
HEAD-TO-HEAD: This is the sixth meeting between the teams, with England yet to lose (W2, D3).
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! England get us underway on this landmark night for the Three Lions.
Plenty of legends from yesteryear turning up at Wembley tonight or wishing the team good luck from further afield.
Harry Maguire on the prospect of featuring for England at Wembley at next summer's tournament: "It would be really special to play in a major tournament and walking out at Wembley would be something that you dream of. People say it would give us a little advantage as well. So, it's something. We know that the crowd get right behind us at Wembley and the support over the last few years - especially since I've been playing - has been unbelievable."
HARRY'S HEROICS: Kane has had a hand in 10 goals in his past four England outings, netting on six occasions. The Spurs man snared a treble in his last Wembley appearance v Bulgaria. No player has ever scored three goals in consecutive appearances at the national stadium. Could Kane do it tonight?
Montenegro coach Faruk Hadžibegić: “England are currently one of the best sides in Europe, often scoring five or six goals per game. Our absent players are a problem – they have been for some time – but it is what it is. Others will come in, give their all and show that they can be counted on. The goal is to expand our squad and show ourselves in the best possible light.”
Former England full back and Eurosport pundit, Paul Parker's has had his say on the Sterling situation.
Southgate admitted on Wednesday he "wouldn't imagine" that forward Raheem Sterling is "hugely enthusiastic" about him at the moment. However, the forward remains in the camp and could well feature v Kosovo on Sunday.
If you haven't heard that Raheem Sterling has been dropped, then where have you been hiding these past few days? Here's Southgate on non-Sterling-related matters: "I think what is exciting over the next five years or so is the youth of this squad. They are gaining experience all the time in big matches and one or two more players still underneath this group - in terms of age - are going to come in and, I think, be outstanding players for England."
The key lines from the team sheet involve Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in for his first start for the Three Lions in over a year and half as Gareth Southgate makes five changes from the side that thumped Bulgaria 6-0 last time out. Trent Alexander-Arnold, John Stones, Mason Mount and Jadon Sancho are also in from the off.
CONFIRMED TEAMS - ENGLAND: Pickford, Alexander-Arnold, Chilwell, Stones, Maguire, Winks, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mount, Rashford, Sancho, Kane. /// MONTENEGRO: Mijatovic, Vesovic, Sofranac, Simic, Radunovic, Hocko, Lagator, Vukcevic, Jovovic, Haksabanovic, Beciraj.
