It wasn’t a bad season was it? We had one of the highest points totals in the league after Christmas, got to two cup finals, and convinced one of the most exciting managers in Europe to come and lead us.
Yes, the league form was a bit disappointing, but on balance we can be reasonably happy with the progress made and the experiences gained.
Now Lallana has claimed that all that experience will benefit The Three Lions when their EUROs campaign begins in France this weekend.
“I have some great memories of those nights – the comeback against Dortmund was massive and remarkable, the United games were special too.
“It was just bitterly disappointing that we played as we did in the second half of the final,” he continued.
He is one of five Reds in England’s squad – Henderson, Sturridge, Clyne, and Milner are also involved. Arguably all five will have reasonable hopes of being on the pitch when Roy picks his team to face Russia at 8pm GMT on Saturday night.
Only Clyne was not in the 2014 World Cup squad.
