Rooney happy to play anywhere

Wayne Rooney insists he is happy to play in any position he is asked to by England Coach Roy Hodgson.

The 28-year-old has lined-up in both central and wide roles during the Three Lions’ various World Cup warm-up matches.

He started on the left wing during England’s 2-2 draw against Ecuador on Wednesday and, speaking to Sky Sports News, the Manchester United man said he has no problem with any role he is asked to undertake.

“I have played there [out wide] quite a lot in my career,” Rooney said. “I have played left and right, more so on the left.

“The manager asked me to play there and I have no problem doing it.

“I’m not going to stop playing for England because I was moved out to the left wing, am I? I’m happy to play for England where I’m needed.”
