England continued their perfect start to Euro 2020 qualifying with a 5-1 thrashing of Montenegro on Monday, but another impressive victory for the Three Lions was overshadowed by allegations of racist abuse in Podgorica.

Raheem Sterling celebrated the visitors' fifth goal by cupping his ears towards the home fans, while England manager Gareth Southgate said he heard racist chants aimed at Danny Rose.

“I definitely heard abuse at Danny Rose when he got booked at the end of the game. There is no doubt in my mind it happened. We will make sure that is reported to Uefa because it’s not acceptable,” said Southgate. “We’ve got to make sure we support our players.”

On the field, England showed why their current crop are among the favourites to be European champions next year after Marko Vesovic stunned the World Cup semifinalists early on.

Michael Keane’s header restored parity before Barkley's double either side of halftime put the visitors in command and Harry Kane and Sterling rounded off a comprehensive victory.

Southgate's trust in youth was again rewarded as 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi, who is yet to start a Premier League game for Chelsea, shone on his full international debut, while Declan Rice, 20, was also handed his first England start.

“Fabulous performance,” said Southgate on Hudson-Odoi. “With young players it is always up to them. You can see the talent, his application has been excellent. He’s got to continue that.” (Goal)
