The Englishman withdrew from Gareth Southgate’s squad after suffering a groin strain
Adam Lallana will be available to return for Liverpool later this month.
The England international withdrew from Gareth Southgate’s squad for the country’s upcoming matches after suffering a groin strain in training, however a scan has revealed it is only a minor injury.
Lallana should therefore come back into contention by late September in time for the start of Liverpool’s cup campaigns.
“It’s a minor setback, which isn’t ideal, as I’ve been in great shape until now, but it’s positive news that it’s only a brief lay-off,” Lallana told Liverpoolfc.com.
“I’m pleased I’ll be back available for Liverpool, both domestically and in the Champions League during September, and then England again for the next break.
“I know I can make a significant contribution over the course of a long season and that’s where my focus will remain – with so much to play for.
“Doing my best and giving everything for my teammates, management and supporters of club and country is all that matters.
“I’m back at Melwood now making sure my time off the pitch is as short as possible, so I’ll be supporting Gareth and the boys from up here,” he concluded.
