Montenegro head coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic claimed he was only focused on the game after his team’s 5-1 drubbing against England.
The Podgorica arena is noted for its hostile atmosphere and that was evident on Monday night when England’s win was marred by racist abuse.
Spurs defender was a subject of abuse from the crowd after he was booked late in the game, While Hudson-Odoi claimed he had a lighter thrown at him by supporters.
"It's now time for the people that are in charge to put a real stamp on it because you can fine someone but what's that going to do?"

But surprisingly the Montenegro head coach insisted he did not hear any racist chanting aimed at England players.
“I have not noticed nor heard any chanting. The first time I have heard [of] this is now,” he said via Sky Sports.
“First of all, I don’t see the reason why I should comment on that.
“Second, I haven’t heard anything.
“Third, I was thinking about the game, so I had to concentrate on the game.”
A Montenegro official attempted to shut down questions on racist abuse before letting Tumbakovic answer questions from the British media on the subject.
“I will stop you. Nobody heard any racist chants towards the English fans,” the official said before the media interjected to say England manager Gareth Southgate had heard racist chanting, with the FA set to raise the matter with UEFA.
UEFA are awaiting reports from the match referee and match delegate before deciding whether to charge Montenegro and are expected to receive those on Tuesday.
