Montenegro?

The Football Association, on behalf of several members of the England international football team, have registered a complaint with FIFA, football's world governing body over the choice of name of England's opponents on Thursday night, Montenegro.

The word 'Montenegro', it has been claimed, is racially offensive.

The England players who raised the complaint haven't been named, but they are thought to be the sensitive, touchy type.

The Montenegro Football Association has responded by saying "it means 'black mountain', and has no racist connotation whatsoever", but the England camp is not convinced.

"Who would name a country after a black mountain?" said an unnamed player. "It's obviously a racial slur, and England players, and especially black England players, are not going to put up with this kind of thing anymore."

Another unnamed player said "This is the twenty-first century, not the middle ages. These tinpot countries ought to be brought into line with the developed and civilised nations."

Gareth Southgate looked on, disgusted.
