Adam Lallana is likely to be in the England team that lines up against Slovakia on Sunday, with the Liverpool midfielder usually delivering for his country when it matters.
Indeed, Lallana was one of the few players to emerge with any credit after Euro 2016 and he’s been impressed with Sam Allardyce’s methods, with the former Sunderland and West Ham boss keen to create a relaxed atmosphere within the camp.
The Liverpool midfielder said: “He spoke to us about wanting to win, which is quite simple really.
“We haven’t gone into too much detail about specific styles. I don’t think he has a specific style. He has mentioned how, depending where we are playing and who we are playing, that the style may change.
“It sounds like a sensible plan for me. He seems adaptable which is a good quality to have when you’re a manager. Things have been quite straightforward for me and I have been very impressed with what I’ve seen.
“Since I’ve played for England I wouldn’t say we have had a specific style. Things change in games and the manager has made it clear to us that he expects us to take responsibility, especially when we are out on the field.
“We have not had too many meetings and he’s not wanted to throw loads of information at us straight away. Training has been very enjoyable and the lads are buzzing. He has been very relaxed towards us.”
