Lallana keen for another chance with England

Adam Lallana's first taste of international football has left him hungry for more.

Lallana was handed a shock call-up to the England squad for the friendlies against Germany and Chile, and he responded with two encouraging performances.

Playing at Wembley for England is something I have always dreamed of.

The hairs on the back of my neck stood up when I walked out in front of a packed crowd. To get two caps at Wembley against tough opposition is a proud moment for me and my family but I don't want that to be it. I want more.

It's a step up in quality, but it's where I want to be.

International football is the pinnacle, it's where the best football is played and this experience makes me hungry for more.

It has been a pleasure training and playing with these top players day in day out and hopefully it won't be the last time.
