England coach Roy Hodgson won't play his stars out of position.

Hodgson has no intention of shunting players out of position to make life easier for himself.

"You must balance your team out," he said.

"You get as many of your best players in the team but if you are really very fortunate and have got four exceptional players, who play in the same position and they are all fit and ready to play, I'm afraid you have to make the choice.

"The mistake can be to try and include them all.

"But I'm not going to ask Jack Wilshere, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard or Michael Carrick to play on the right wing."
