Rooney: I Play Where I'm Needed

Wayne Rooney has dismissed any claims that he is unhappy to be stuck out on the left of England’s attack, instead of leading the line.

The Manchester United talisman made his debut for the Three Lions as a 17 year old and has has scored 39 goals in 91 international appearances and competed at World Cup tournaments in 2006 and 2010.

With Roy Hodgson preferring to play Liverpool duo Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert more centrally, Rooney revealed that he will play anywhere for his country even if it means being stuck out on the left-wing.

"I have played there quite a lot in my career," said Rooney.

"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 am not going to stop playing for England because I was moved out on to the left wing, am I? I am happy to play for England where I am needed."
