Sterling happy to play anywhere

The tattoo on Raheem Sterling's arm may suggest he was destined to play in the No. 10 role for England, but the Liverpool player insists he is happy to start tomorrow morning's (Singapore time) match against Uruguay in any position.

Sterling starred in England's defeat by Italy on Saturday in Manaus. He was a constant threat to the Italian defence playing in the hole just behind his Liverpool teammate Daniel Sturridge but, tomorrow, he could have to make way for Wayne Rooney, who favours playing in that role.

"I would be happy to play anywhere the manager puts me," Sterling said.

"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." - PA Sport.
