Lallana aiming to become an England regular

After making his England debut on Friday in the defeat by Chile, Adam Lallana has told of his determination to become a regular for the national team, Sky Sports is reporting.

Lallana played for 75 minutes at Wembley before being substituted, as Chile won comfortably against a relatively inexperienced England side. The 25-year-old struggled to make an impact, and afterwards he admitted that he will do everything he can to earn a place in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the World Cup next summer.

He said: “I am massively determined. It is obviously the pinnacle of everyone really that’s involved in the game. It is every child’s dream to represent their country and I am happy I fulfilled that. I am just hungry for more now.

“I was proud to get my first cap, but obviously disappointed with the result. I had a couple of chances first half. I felt I snatched especially at the second one. It was just a little bit under my feet. I think it might have taken a deflection – it was possibly creeping in the bottom corner.

“I gave it everything and got through 75 minutes and was obviously delighted to represent my country. I hope it is not the last time.”

Lallana, along with Jay Rodriguez, earned their England calls after starring for Southampton in the early weeks of the Premier League season, helping the Saints to surprise third place after 11 games.
