The England international opened his account for the season in the second half at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux stadium as he cut in from the left-hand side and stroked the ball into the net and handed the Merseyside outfit the lead, which they failed to hold onto as Jussie equalised with nine minutes remaining and rescued a point for the hosts.

Take a look at the reaction Lallana’s goal has garnered from a selection of Liverpool supporters on Twitter:
Lallana made that look so easy. He’s like, Oh, you wanted a GOAL? I thought we were just supposed to pass it sideways. But ok, I can score.
