Montenegro will feel that they can make an impact in Euro 2024 qualifying having been provided with a group where a top-two finish is achievable.
While losing at home to Serbia may prove decisive, the draw with Hungary that followed has led to a scenario where they could be level on points with the latter of those nations after Thursday’s fixtures.

However, this remains a team that have won just once in eight matches – a 1-0 victory in Bulgaria – and manager Miodrag Radulovic knows that there is plenty of work ahead if they are to reach the Finals next summer.
