Liverpool sensation Adam Lallana has continued his brilliant club form in national colours, as he scored from a nice header in England’s 3-0 win over Scotland. Following that match, the Reds midfielder has commented on several aspects of his club and country.
The former Southampton star acknowledged that it really felt nice to bring his astounding form from the Anfield to Wembley. About the header he scored, he could not but admit that it was a rare event and he was happy to finish it in style.
The England star further commented, “It was a great occasion at Wembley against Scotland and we’re delighted to get the three points, which was the main job. Gareth’s (Southgate) not had long in the job so credit to him and how he has taken it on. We’re listening to him. We’re listening to what he wants to do.”
Many people have been saying that Lallana has finally found his touch this season, and so is probably true for many other Liverpool players. The Englishman, however, begged to disagree. He said, “Someone said to me last week, ‘You’re finally a Liverpool player’. I don’t agree with that at all. Last year we were playing well. We got to two finals at Liverpool.”
The Liverpool man thinks that this year things are falling into places for him and he is ecstatic that he has got a good run of games for both club and the country. But at the same time, he said that he is not that worried about his own form. “It’s more about how we do as a team, domestically and internationally,” Lallana said.
The midfielder further added, “We’re unbeaten in the group and on top with England and top of the league with Liverpool. The objective is to qualify for Russia and we’re well on the way to getting there.”
One of the main Liverpool talismans this season, Lallana thinks that there are plenty of rooms for his improvement. “I feel like I’m improving every day at Liverpool, working hard under the boss and, hopefully, I can keep doing well and performing well for England,” he said.
The 28 year old also talked about his teammates at the Premier League side, “When you have got confidence, it’s important you take advantage of it because it’s not something you can just switch on and off. It’s something which comes gradually and I feel I’m at the top of my game at the minute, as everyone is at Liverpool.”
The Reds will face Lallana’s former club Southampton next weekend and it cannot be denied that Jurgen Klopp’s men are in a red hot form, scoring 16 goals in the last four league outings, the recent of which is a 6-1 thrashing of Watford. All in all, Lallana and co have enough reasons to be hopeful for yet another win against the Saints and the player himself will surely look forward to play his parts once again.
