Despite not making England’s World Cup squad, Adam Lallana has seemingly remained in high spirits.

The Reds midfielder, who has missed the majority of the season with injuries, was a surprise omission from Gareth Southgate’s squad to take to Russia.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fabian Delph were preferred ahead of the former Southampton man, while Arsenal star Jack Wilshere also missed out.

But the biggest surprise was the uncapped Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Despite a fantastic tail end to the season, Lallana’s club mate has yet to feature for his country.

But his more experienced colleague was the utmost professional in congratulating the 19-year-old, even offering a cheeky bit of advice.

In a post on Instagram, Lallana said: “Congratulations to everyone selected for the England World Cup squad today.

“Obviously particularly delighted for Hendo [Jordan Henderson] and Trent [Alexander-Arnold]… two lads who prove that being down to earth off the pitch doesn’t stop you being a star on it.

“And Trent… take the lead from the skip and tuck that shirt in laa [sic].”
