Lallana 'living the dream'

Lallana 'living the dream'
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has insisted he is fulfilling a childhood dream to play in the Champions League

Lallana started for Liverpool in their Champions League opener with PFC Ludogorets and is line to feature against FC Basel tonight.

Having missed the start of the season through a knee injury, Lallana has come into the side in recent weeks as he looks to cement a place in the starting roster.

"I've always dreamed about playing in this competition as a kid,"
said the £ 25million summer signing from Southampton.

"I feel I am more or less there on fitness. I knew it was going to be tough, I am just delighted to be back playing for such a fantastic club.

"I think it gives you more game opportunities to get up to speed, to knit with the group and your new team-mates.

"It is obviously a tough competition and there is no easy game but, to take the positives out of it, it is another game."

Liverpool have made a disappointing start to the 2014/15 season, however a win in Switzerland tonight would put them in an excellent position, ahead of a double header with the tournament holders Real Madrid.
