England ace ready to adapt to system

Daniel Sturridge says that he is willing to play anywhere in the England side following his winning goal against Denmark.

The Liverpool attacker has been in razor-sharp form in a central role for his club side this term, but he started the friendly clash against the Scandinavian outfit in a wide role.

This was met with some criticism, and after an all action showing Sturridge was eventually moved into his favoured role late on when Wayne Rooney was withdrawn.

It was after this that he got onto the end of an Adam Lallana cross to head home the only goal of the night at Wembley.

There have been calls for Sturridge to be used as the focal point of the England side heading into the World Cup, but the player himself says that he is happy to play wherever he is needed:

“It was a good goal, but more important the way that the team played. It is not about myself or my individual attributes, it is about the team, and the result we got,” he is quoted by The Express.

“Whichever system the manager plays me in, I will put my all into it, 100 per cent.

“It is about the team, it is not about me, or where I am on the pitch, questioning about what the manager is doing, it is about doing what the manager says and wherever he puts me I will do my best for him.”
