Lallana out of England squad

Roy Hodgson is due to meet up with his squad on Monday lunchtime, but it is understood Lallana will not be present after suffering a recurrence of a groin injury in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The 26-year-old was withdrawn at half-time at Anfield, although his injury is not thought to be too serious.??

England will be looking to make it five qualifying wins from five in front of a 90,000 capacity crowd at Wembley against Lithuania on Friday night before heading to Turin for a friendly against the nation that beat them in their World Cup opener last summer.
