How does it look? I can only see he has not been subbed off so it is not serious?

he still very visibly limped after the whistle. He just sprained his ankle, really. But the angle of the foot looked bad tbh.

I think he might not make the weekend game .... We will see if the ligaments are somehow hurt.

I'm falling asleep. England friendlies are the worst.

Belgium kinda sucked as well. Drogba scored however! Benteke did a couple of Torreses, Kompany brainfarted twice which all in all cost us the game.

One game and Lallana is Ronaldo.

England always having huge hopes leading to high expectations for there players yet again. Did the exact same with Townsend in his first few games, as always England fans repeat the cycle, we are going to win the World Cup now.

Lallana has been decent all season. England doesn't have anyone else that can do what he does.

He's a decent player, not great.

Chamberlain is a better playe, Sterling possibly. You think Lallana is going to come on in the world cup and rip up teams like he did against a fairly fatigued Denmark defence? You probably don't but I know many english fans that will.

Who is saying Lallana is Ronaldo? Can't someone compliment a player without thinking he's a ballon d'or contender? There is a large gap between sucking and being great. He's nothing like Townsend who had one good game for England but has useless in the league. Lallana has actually been one of the better players in the Premier League season. Not only does he score goals, he sets them up, has a good work-rate, and does a very good job defensively. He's a good player.

Ox and sterling are better suited to the wings. Lallana outshined both today. He has more skill than both and given the chance he could be a lot better.

Do you live in England?

You probably wouldn't understand mate.

Anyone is Ronaldo when the alternatives are Walcott, Lennon and Chamberlane.

Again, one game for England you can't judge on that.

You think Liverpool fans would swap Sterling for Lallana this season? No way, you think Arsenal would do the same about Chamberlain, again no way. Lallana is a decent player and has good trickery but that doesn't mean he's a star or is going to be a star. The exact same was being said about Townsend after two games for England and look at the season he has had for Spurs, even if you minus the injury.

Damn, sprained ligament is atleast 2 weeks. Hope there is no ligament damage.

Lallana is such an underrated player. Good on the ball, good movement, able to play those incisive passes and has a very good workrate off the ball, pretty much like what TorontoChelsea has stated above. Lallana is one of the very few English players who actually has a brain and knows what he's doing and what to do with the ball.

My country was losing to Australia 3 to 0 in the first half, and then managed to turn it around and win 4 to 3 in injury time. B)

Albeit against 10 men. Only scored 1 when at 11 v 11. :ph34r:
