Allardyce: Rooney will play where England needs him

England coach Sam Allardyce says Wayne Rooney will play anywhere he needs him.

Against Slovakia, Rooney will play behind Harry Kane, but Allardyce reckons the Manchester United star can play in ANY position.

Allardyce said, “I've seen Wayne play for United up front, in the hole, down the right, central midfield.

“Does that not show you the credibility of the man and his flexibility. All the managers he's had will play him to get him on the field.

“Instead of sulking and saying 'I don't play there, I play there' he'll do what he needs to get in the team."
