Vucinic joy for Montenegro

Mirko Vucinic is overjoyed at Montenegro's Euro 2012 play-off berth and brings that enthusiasm back with him to Juventus.

The 2-2 draw against England was snatched in stoppages and secures their spot in the play-offs.

“I am incredibly happy and can barely contain my joy,” he grinned in the Corriere dello Sport.

“What we achieved is amazing if we consider the draw. Don't forget we were in the fifth pot along with the other ‘Cinderella' sides of European football and have now finished the group just behind England.

“We're incredibly proud, especially as the population of Montenegro is more or less that of a couple of the 33 boroughs that form London alone. It's magnificent!”

Juventus are also top of the Serie A table and Vucinic returns to Turin early from international duty, as a booking against England means he's suspended for the final qualifier.
