• Adam Lallana in provisional European U-21 Championship Squad

    Stuart Pearce named his provisional 40 man squad for the European U-21 championships this summer and included Saints midfielder Adam Lallana.

    In what could be a crowning end to a fantastic season for Lallana, the young playmaker will be hoping to impress as he has done week in, week out in League One.

    Lallana, who will turn 23 on the 10th May only just makes the qualification age.

      Carroll and Sturidge up front with Lallana playing behind them would be sheer class.

      There's a few strange names in there. I hope he hasn't included Lallana just to appease the locals with a game being held at St Mary's. There are several others that are injured and unlikley to be fit so why bother picking them? - and what is he thinking including Fabrice Muamba!
