Sterling ‘will play anywhere for England’

Raheem Sterling says he would have no complaints if he was asked to change positions for England in their next World Cup fixture, Sky Sports has reported.



Sterling started the 2-1 defeat to Italy playing behind Liverpool teammate Daniel Sturridge but it has been suggested Sterling could be moved to the left wing, with Wayne Rooney, who took the role against the Azzurri, playing centrally.


“I would be happy to play anywhere the manager puts me,” Sterling said when asked for his thoughts on the proposed positional change. “I am a team player. I will be working for the team regardless of which position I play in.


“I don't think the team was built around me necessarily. I just think the manager thought that was the right position for me at the time, with my pressing and my closing down.”


The game was Sterling’s first competitive appearance for the Three Lions, having previously only played in friendlies. The 19-year-old made his England bow in a November 2012 defeat to Sweden, his only senior international game before March this year. He now has five caps to his name.
