Cape Town - Adam Lallana says Liverpool are fostering a winning culture as they aim to add more silverware to their collection at the Club World Cup.

Victory in the Champions League final in June was followed by European Super Cup success and a run of 16 wins in 17 matches to give Jurgen Klopp's side a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

They racked up another win, again thanks to a late intervention, in the semi-final of their Club World Cup semi-final against Monterrey in Doha to set up a meeting with Flamengo as the Reds try to win the one trophy which has so far eluded them on three previous occasions.

"It's like an addiction, you win one medal and you want to win another. You want to win more," said Lallana.

"It's massive. We are European champions and to be World Club champions, there's not many people who can say that. We are going to give it our all.

"I'm sure Bobby and Alisson (Brazilians Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker) will give us some inside info into them (Flamengo).

"We watched them the other day: they were very dynamic, very aggressive, physical, we will have to recover quickly.

"We are just going to concentrate on ourselves. That's all we ever do. We respect the opposition, we will analyse them.

"It's all about recovery now and (come out) all guns blazing for Saturday. Another trophy is up for grabs at the weekend so bring it on.

"We are here in a final so let's go for it."
