Giggs hails impressive Lallana

LONDON — Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs says Liverpool’s Adam Lallana is “fast becoming England’s main man”.

Giggs made the statement following England’s 2-0 victory over Lithuania in their World Cup qualifying match at Wembley on Sunday.

Lallana has been in scintillating form this season and has also been impressing on the international stage. The 28-year-old has scored three goals in his last five England appearances.

Lallana capped yet another impressive display on Sunday by setting up Jamie Vardy’s goal with a clever pass. His eye-catching performances haven’t gone unnoticed.

“He’s fast establishing himself as the main man for England,” Giggs told ITV. “He’s always on the move, he’s always available and he’s tricky on the ball. It’s hard to get the ball off him, he can move either way.

“He’s now adding goals as well. He’s been really impressive. This system suits him and he’s hard to get hold of if you’re a defender.” — Agencies
