Lallana still hopeful on making England World Cup squad

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is confident his fitness problems will not cost him a place in England's World Cup plans after returning for the business end of the season.
Lallana suffered a serious thigh injury last summer, reducing him to a bit-part role and just one start apiece in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League. He has also found himself on the outside looking in during England's road to Russia, ending a nine-month absence from national duty with a second-half appearance in Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Italy .

Lallana said: "Not really, I'm confident enough in my own ability and what I bring to the squad. Me and the boss have a great relationship and have been speaking frequently this season. He's been interested to know where I was on rehab and I've been down to St George's Park a couple of times. He recognises what I bring to the team, my team-mates recognise that and I recognise it also. But I'm smart enough not to be complacent and to know there's plenty of talented players that want to make the squad.I'm not built with complacency, you can see that in the way I play"
