Schneidelrin confident that Lambert, Lallana and Shaw will be picked for England's World Cup squad

Basingstoke Gazette: ADAM LALLANA ADAM LALLANA

One of Saints’ four England World Cup hopefuls has already seen his dreams of Brazil dashed, but Morgan Schneiderlin is confident the remaining three will be heading to the tournament this summer.

Jay Rodriguez has been cruelly ruled out of contention for the competition after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, leaving him facing a six-month spell on the sidelines.

However, there is still significant hope that Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Luke Shaw can make Roy Hodgson’s squad, which is due to be announced on May 13.

“I’m very confident for them,” said Schneiderlin.

“I just think Adam Lallana he plays week in and week out very good. Same for Lambert, same for Luke Shaw.

“There’s many opportunities for them. They just need to focus in the last couple of games and then they’ll see.

“They can’t do anything about it. They’ve played very well and after it’s the manager’s decision.”

Saints squad seems to be much like a close knit family, with a strong 'all for one and one for all' mentality. They are confident in the ability of fellow squad members and in their manager and his coaching team.

It is a squad that continues to improve as time passes, doing everything the Southampton Way, onward and upward.

Morgan is correct that Rickie, Adam and Luke have genuine credentials for being chosen for England's World Cup squad. Now it is all up to our three jewels to continue to shine and make Roy Hodgson decide to include them for Brazil.

Good luck to all three!!!

And spare a thought for Jay.
