There are four teams still in contention to progress from Group H to next summer's tournament in Brazil, and Brnovic is sensing an opportunity to make history.
It is England who lead Ukraine and Montenegro by a point, with Poland a further two points adrift, but Brnovic has faith that his team can reach the finals of a major competition for the first time.
He is also thrilled that such an important game in their history will take place at such an iconic venue as Wembley when Montenegro meet England in their penultimate qualifier on Friday.
Brnovic told the official match programme: "For every one of our players, it is an honour to be deciding who will go the World Cup against England at Wembley.
"We know we have good quality, we believe in ourselves and, again, we will have against us a team with big players and a big coach.
"We will certainly try to play the best we can but we have a belief in ourselves and a belief that we can do it."
Montenegro are at home to Moldova in their final group game next Tuesday and if they miss out on top spot they could still go into the play-offs by finishing second.
Brnovic reckons Montenegro are well equipped to qualify, saying: "I think we can do it. Because we have the quality and I also think that this team plays much better away than home.
"Thus, I believe that players do not need any special motivation for such games, because to play against the great England team at Wembley is something that every player dreams about, especially players from Montenegro.
"It's something that no-one ever dreamed to be possible, that such a small country could qualify for a World Cup.
"I believe this dream is on the verge of coming true, but we need to do the two matches properly to turn this dream into a reality."
