Lallana ready to ‘step up’

Adam Lallana is determined to "step up" and start scoring for England on the back of his maiden Liverpool strike.

Lallana ready to ‘step up’

The 26-year-old netted his first Reds goal in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat of West Brom.

Lallana is determined to follow that up by breaking his England duck in the upcoming European Championship qualifiers, starting with minnows San Marino tomorrow night.

“I think I need to make that step up,” Lallana said. “I mean, the type of player I am I have always chipped in with goals throughout my career.

“I feel with England I need to step up and nip in with a fair few of my own, like at club level. It is something I want to add to my game and add to what I do when I play for England.”
