Lallana left out of England squad

Southampton star Adam Lallana is out of the England squad again after winning his first call-up for last month's game with Ukraine.

The Saints midfielder has been overlooked by Roy Hodgson for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland despite his inclusion as an unused substitute in that 1-1 draw at Wembley.
Lallana was a late addition to the squad for the clash on September 11th after a spate of withdrawals through injury, but Hodgson is spoilt for choice this time, so his services won't be required.
Southampton hitman Rickie Lambert had also been tipped for a possible call-up, after continuing his impressive scoring form in the Premier League in the wake of the club's promotion, but he too has missed out.
Lambert has scored four times so far this season - a total that no English striker can beat - but Hodgson has opted instead to go with Andy Carroll and Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Jermain Defoe as his four forwards.
Carroll and Rooney are back in contention for the national team after recently returning to action after injury lay-offs.
Ex-Saints duo Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are named in the 25-man squad which also includes Celtic keeper Fraser Forster and Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross for the first time.
