Lallana: I need to score for England

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

The 26-year-old ended a memorable 14-year spell at Southampton in the summer in search of Champions League football, joining Liverpool for £25million.

A knee injury was an unfortunate early setback, although Lallana has flourished since recovering from that, netting his first Reds goal in Saturday's 2-1 defeat of West Brom.

It was a "special feeling" full of different emotions for the attacking midfielder, who is determined to follow that up by breaking his England duck in the upcoming European Championship qualifiers.

"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."
