Mirko Vucinic claims to have found England's weak link, with the Montenegro captain unimpressed by their centre-halves.

Juventus forward Vucinic will lead the line for his country on Tuesday in a potentially pivotal 2014 World Cup qualifier.
Victory for the hosts in Podgorica would make them strong favourites to top Group H and leave England scrapping for a play-off spot.
Vucinic feels there are areas of the Three Lions side that Montenegro can look to exploit, with the experienced frontman of the opinion that Chris Smalling and Joleon Lescott could be found wanting.
Smalling and Lescott turn out for Manchester giants United and City respectively at club level, but they are not considered to be guaranteed starters and are relatively inexperienced on the international stage.
"I certainly do see that as a source of weakness because, if they do not play for their own clubs, I don't see why their national coach should pick them for the team," said Vucinic.
Asked if he expected the likes of Rio Ferdinand and John Terry to still be involved with the England set-up, Vucinic added: "The match would be better and more interesting if they played because they are certainly among the best defenders in the world today."
