Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted he is happy to show his versatility for club and country having filled a variety of roles in recent months.
The Arsenal and England player has featured in central midfield and out wide and ended the season playing right wing-back for the Gunners.
On Saturday he scored at Hampden Park in England’s 2-2 draw with Scotland shortly after replacing Marcus Rashford on the wing and manager Gareth Southgate now has to decide how best to utilise him in Tuesday’s friendly in France.
“I enjoyed them all for different reasons,” Oxlade-Chamberlain said of his positional switches. “I played more of my games on the wing, then playing in midfield for a while.
“Our results weren’t good at that time, but I really enjoyed that and started to get some rhythm and to feel comfortable.
“Then we had an international break and I missed the next game, Aaron [Ramsey] came back in and, with the change of formation, the wing-back role was interesting but one I adapted to quickly as best I could. I really enjoyed that.
“There were some times when we were playing against a few teams where I was a bit deeper than I’d like to, in a right-back role which I don’t really enjoy, but I was more than happy to do the job.
“I play where I’m told to play. The more positions I can play, it gives the manager a nice headache and it can be helpful for him.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain is keen to help secure England’s berth at the 2018 World Cup having missed Euro 2016 through injury and failing to recover in time from a knee complaint at the last World Cup.
“My England career, honestly, I feel like it is has been in two halves,” he added. “I’m starting the second part of it.
“Everything came quite quick and fast, and I got a lot of caps quite quickly, then was injured and had a spell out, missed the Euros. There was quite a long gap where I didn’t play.
“In this squad, a lot of new boys have come in so it feels like a new squad.
“A bit stop-start, my career, but at this moment I have a lot of faith in this new team and the manager and what we’re trying to build here.”
