Adam Lallana was taken off after just 27 minutes of England's game against Spain after a tackle by Thiago as Liverpool fans and Jurgen Klopp sweat over the diagnosis of one of their star players in the coming hours and days.

The Liverpool attacker gave England the lead with a well-taken penalty after Jamie Vardy was hauled down by Pepe Reina but his evening was cut short just 18 minutes later.

Excellent form

Lallana has been in excellent form for club and country this year scoring three goals and assisting in five while playing in all 11 of the Reds' game so far in the Premier League. Klopp's side currently lead the league by a point and face Southampton away next weekend in a game that will test the German's side to the limit.

The former Southampton player has also score three times in his last three international games having failed to do so in the previous 25 games with his country.
