Montenegro hope that the atmosphere in Podgorica tonight will help them to overturn a 2-0 deficit against the Czech Republic.

"We won't collapse," insisted the striker Dejan Damjanovic. "We're a totally different team at home. We have to be a lot more attacking in the second leg."

The defender Stefan Savic, of Manchester City, added: "There's still 90 minutes to play, and I think we can beat them in our stadium. It's going to be very hard, but we have hope."

The Czech coach Michal Bilek's instructions to his players were simple. "If we score once," he said, "Montenegro must get four, which will be very, very difficult."
