Head to head

The Three Lions have never played Serbia at men's senior level, although they faced them in the form of Serbia & Montenegro in an international friendly back in 2003.

Taking place at Leicester City's King Power Stadium, that match ended in a 2-1 win for England, with Steven Gerrard's opening goal cancelled out on the stroke of half time by Nenad Jestrovic.

It looked as the game would end all square, until second-half substitute Joe Cole notched a winning goal in the 82nd minute to send the 30,000 plus crowd home happy.

Current England boss Gareth Southgate started the game in central defence, before he was replaced by John Terry for the second half.
