Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana refused to underestimate Malaysia XI ahead of Friday’s clash in Kuala Lumpur.
Despite facing a weakened Malaysia XI side, the England international insisted Liverpool will not be taking Dollah Salleh's men lightly.
“We are treating this match very seriously,” Lallana told a group of reporters after his side’s practice match against Felda United, which they won 7-0.
“We only have two, three games left before the new season starts for us to impress the manager.
“The game will be a big chance for us to show how fit we are and what condition we are in as we prepare for the season opener against Stoke City.”
Lallana also brushed aside the notion that the upcoming Bukit Jalil National Stadium encounter will be a walk in the park for the Reds.
“I have never played in an easy match in my life.”
