Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino believes his captain Adam Lallana is easily good enough to play for Brazil, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Saints boss puts Lallana alongside the likes of Juan Mata, Oscar and Eden Hazard – and insists he should be starting games for England at the summer’s World Cup.

“In my opinion, if Adam Lallana had a Brazilian nationality, a Spanish nationality – if he were another Mata, Oscar, Hazard, or any of these type of players – for sure, he would be going with their national side,” former Argentina defender Pochettino said.

“I truly believe that. Of course he is a very talented player, a very special player. I really like his characteristics as a player and hopefully he can be on that plane to Brazil because I think he fully deserves to be there.

“You can see that he is one of the most talented players in the English game right now. He is the type of player that is hard to find in any other English team.

“It is clear to anyone the talent that he has got. His progress is consistent.

“It’s his second season in the Premier League so it’s only normal that he’s becoming even more professional and his progress is always on the up.”

Lallana put in another fine performance for the Saints at the weekend, scoring the opener in front of England boss Roy Hodgson, as Southampton ran out 3-0 winners at Fulham.

    If Adam played for any of the elite clubs, people would be jizzing in their pants over his football
