Ian Wright has criticised the performances of Merseyside duo Ross Barkley and Adam Lallana after England’s 2-0 loss to Spain last night.

Barkley and Lallana started the Three Lions’s clash in Alicante but struggled to have an impact as goals from Mario and Santi Cazorla sealed a win for the hosts.

The Everton midfielder has been in impressive form for the Toffees this season, whilst Liverpool playmaker Lallana has struggled to have an impact for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Former Arsenal and England striker Wright didn’t hold back in his assessment of their performances, whilst the Gunners’s second-highest goal-scorer of all-time also criticised Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.

“There aren’t many positives to take out of the defeat,” Wright told ITV.

“It’s disappointing. I just wanted to see a few players turn up more, but a few players didn’t, Sterling, Barkley and Lallana [in particular]. It was very disappointing in that respect.”

Lallana has made one assist in eight Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

The 21-year-old Everton playmaker has scored 13 times in 107 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit.

Barkley has already earned 17 caps for England, scoring his first senior goal in a 6-0 victory over San Marino in September.
