Adam Lallana is a midfielder, born on 10 May 1988 in St Albans, England.
In 2000 Southampton invited Adam to their academy, and the coaching staff identified his strengths and weaknesses. The footballer was asked to join one of the club’s youth teams and performed in the youth championship, but not for too long. During six years Lallana managed to develop his best qualities, perfected those he had to pay more attention to and became a very promising attacking midfielder.
In 2006 the young footballer was invited to the main team of ‘The Saints’ and penned a contract with the club. After several months with Southampton, Adam went on loan to Bournemouth and made three appearances for the temporary team before the end of his spell. Lallana began to take more active part in fixtures of his parent club and revealed his potential, which was further developed by the head coach to the level he could not think of somebody to replace the midfielder. As time went by Lallana turned into a brilliant midfielder and managed to make 265 appearances and score 60 goals for Southampton from 2006 to 2014.
In the summer 2014 he was lured away to Liverpool.
From 2006 till 2008, Lallana was capped three times and contributed one goal for the England national U-18, U-19 and U-21 teams. Since 2013 he has played for The Three Lions.
