PARIS: England must ignore talks about their Euro 2016 prospects and focus instead on getting off to a good start in their tournament opener against Russia on Saturday, midfielder Adam Lallana has said. “All the team’s focus will be on Russia now. It’s the first game, you don’t want to lose your first match and it’s important we get off to a good start and build from there,” Lallana said. “I think it’s important to treat it as much of a normal game as you can. There’s always going to be hype but if we concentrate on our football and don’t get too caught up in the emotion and what comes with it then I’m sure we’ll be fine.”.
