Liverpool playmaker Adam Lallana gave Reds fans a boost last night as he tempered fears of an injury lay-off after limping off the Wembley pitch against Spain.
The former Southampton man, who is set to face his old club at St. Mary’s on Saturday, gave journalists in the mixed zone after the Three Lions’ 2-2 draw at Wembley a thumbs up as he left the stadium.
Thumbs up from Lallana as he walks through the mixed zone. Seems confident he's not injured. #LFC

The England international, who opened the scoring from the spot against the three-time European Champions on Tuesday night, has been in fine fettle for his club this season – scoring three goals and setting up five in 12 outings for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The former Saints captain, who left for Merseyside in 2014 along with Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren, made 260 appearances for the South Coast side – scoring 59 goals – and was crucial in their rise back to the top flight from the doldrums of League One.
Despite his successes for the club, the 28-year-old is not held in the highest light by the St. Mary’s fans and will be relishing the chance to return to his old stomping ground and make a mark on the fixture.
