Hodgson: Southampton's Lallana deserves his England call

England coach Roy Hodgson says Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana deserves his senior call.

Lallana, 24, who played a key role in Southampton's promotion to the Premier League last season, made only one appearance for the Under-21s back in 2008.

"Lallana is a player that I watched when Southampton were in the Championship," said Hodgson. "He has been on my radar for a while. It's good that he has confirmed what we have always thought, that he is a talent."
