Southampton's Lallana desperate for Champions League football

Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana has revealed his ambition to play in the Champions League. The 25 year olds immediate aim is to earn an England role in Brazil this summer, but has ambitions to one day to test himself in Europe's top competition.

"In the long term I would love to feature and play in Champions League football, but I'm sure everyone in our team will tell you that," he told Sky Sports News.

"For the moment I'm just really focused on the remaining part of the season. It's going to be a tough eight to nine weeks and hopefully fingers crossed a busy summer.

"I need to keep working hard, concentrate on my fitness and on my form. I'm fully focused on trying to get the club into the Europa League and hopefully by doing that I'll be able to force myself into the squad."

"When I've played for England and trained with them it's great. You get that taste for what it's like playing with the world's best players and on the best stage in the world," he added.

"I've enjoyed every moment of it and I want to keep progressing and hopefully get as many more caps as possible.

"Of course I'd love to go to the World Cup, but I just want to make sure I keep my feet on the ground and keep working hard and hopefully that formula will make me get into the final squad."
