England ace Ashley Young fired his side to victory over Wales last night to put them on the verge of qualifying for next summer's European Championship Finals and he now wants to finish the job in Montenegro next month.
The Three Lions know that if they avoid defeat in Podgorica on 7 October then they will top the group and confirm their place at the Finals in Poland and Ukraine next summer, but Young is only targeting three points to round off the qualifying games.
"We go there wanting to win and we don't want to draw," he told FATV.
"We'll go there to be positive, so take the positives out of tonight, build on them and hopefully get three points again."
The Manchester United man is enjoying some good form at Wembley having scored crucial goals in the last two games at the Stadium for England against both Switzerland and Wales.
And whilst the team performance wasn't what everybody might have hoped for against Gary Speed's side, Young was just happy to help England to an important three points.
"I'm delighted to get on the scoresheet again, but at the end of the day we had to go out and get the result and we've done that," he added.
"Stewart (Downing) has done brilliantly down the right and pulled the ball back and I managed to get in the right area to finish it off.
"It was a tough game, but we've come through it with the three points and that's what we needed.
"Hopefully we can go on and beat Montenegro and get that top spot."
