Lallana calls for calm

Adam Lallana has called on English fans to act sensibly to ensure the Three Lions are not expelled from Euro 2016.

The Russian Football Union has been handed a suspended disqualification following the violence that took place in the Stade Velodrome after the 1-1 draw with England on Saturday.

The incident came on the back of three days of clashes between rival supporters in Marseille and UEFA has warned both countries will be thrown out of the competition if there is more trouble.

England believes it would be 'devastating' if England were to be thrown out of Euro 2016 and he has urged supporters to act accordingly.

"It would be devastating," Lallana told reporters when asked about a possible expulsion. "Our message is for everyone to be safe and sensible. By all means enjoy the match, but be respectful that we are out there."

Lallana admitted the violence will not distract the players are they prepare for Thursday's Group B clash with Wales.

"I've got friends and family coming to the game but I trust everyone to be sensible and safe. It's a big game and I've got to focus on my job and hopefully everyone can do their job off the field," he said.

"I'm not concerned it will be a distraction."

Gareth Bale was on target for Wales as Chris Coleman's side defeated Slovakia 2-1 in their Euro 2016 opener on Saturday and the Real Madrid star will be looking to add to his tally against England on Thursday.

Lallana knows Bale from their time at the Southampton academy but, while he is impressed with his former team-mate's progression, he believes the Welsh team are more than just one player.

"I played with Gareth growing up and he always had great ability, great talent from a young age," Lallana said.

"It's credit to him, how hard he's worked, how he's developed his game and now he's at the top.

"Listen, Gareth's a great player but Wales have got a lot of talented players in their team so it's not just Gareth we've got to focus on. We've got to focus on all of their strengths."
