One of the Premier League's star midfield performers over the past 12 months, Adam Lallana will be a key playmaker for England this summer having helped Southampton to a top eight finish in the league with many man of the match performances. The Saints' all-round attacking player's ability to create chances as well as finish them make his longer midfield player betting odds a serious individual goalscorer market scoop, Lallana certain to start for the Three Lions.
Part of a Southampton side which claimed three PFA Team of the Year awards, all from different leagues in their rise from as low as League One, Lallana has stayed loyal to the club since 2006 until the present day, with only one loan spell worth three games at Bournemouth from 2007/08 otherwise to his CV.
Beginning his career through the Bournemouth and Southampton youth ranks, attacking midfielder Lallana made his first team debut in July 2006 for the latter and duly went on to score his first professional goal for the Saints in April 2008 against West Brom, what would be the first of 60 from 265 appearances up until this day.
Following promotion to the Championship, Lallana scored 11 goals as the side were reunited with the Premier League in 2012.
The 26-year-old comes off the back of his arguably his best season to date, with 10 goals in all competitions coupling a campaign in which Lallana was one of the team's most precious playmakers from 42 appearances that netted many man of the match performances after forming a deadly partnership with fellow England players Ricky Lambert and Jay Rodriguez - the former also on the plane to Brazil this summer.
His showings warranted a call-up from Roy Hodgson to play for England, Lallana having previously scored on his England Under-18s debut against Slovenia. Lallana won his first cap for England on 15 November 2013 in a friendly against Chile at Wembley Stadium, one of three friendly appearances for his country's senior side.

Despite experience not being on his side at International level, his playmaking and individual skill shown over the previous year in particular made it impossible for Hodgson not to take him to Brazil. Potentially playing alongside team-mate Lambert at some stage will add familarity to his game, but he can also find the back of the net and will therefore be a hot player betting tip for individual goalscorer markets to take a punt on for a greater payout.
