Manchester City midfielder James Milner is happy to be England's odd-jobs man.

Milner offers more defensively than Theo Walcott, yet the Arsenal winger is a greater offensive threat, as he proved with his match- changing display in the 3-2 win over Sweden.

The Etihad ace said: “I’m willing to play wherever the manager picks me. I think I play my best football in the middle, but if I play wide, I’ll do it to the best of my ability.

“The manager wants us tucked in, compact and tight — and it has worked so far.”
