Southampton boss Pochettino: Lallana just like Mata, Hazard

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino says Adam Lallana must go to the World Cup with England.

The midfielder was outstanding in victory over Fulham.

Pochettino said: "In my opinion, if Adam Lallana had a Brazilian nationality, a Spanish nationality, if he were another Mata, Oscar, Hazard, or any of these type of players then, for sure, he would be going with their national side. I truly believe that.

"Of course he is a very talented player, a very special player. He is a player I really praise, I really like his characteristics as a player and hopefully he can be on that plane to Brazil because I think he fully deserves it, he fully deserves to be there.

"You can see that he is one of the most talented players in the English game right now. He is the type of player that is hard to find in any other English team. It is clear to anyone the talent that he has got."
