Ledley King admits he is unsure of a midfield role for England.

The Spurs defender is being tipped to play a holding role should Gareth Barry not be fit.

He said: “Do I fancy a holding midfield role on Sunday? I don’t know, I am not sure about that. A lot has changed since I last played there.

“With not training, midfield is a different role, it is different on the body. I’ve got kind of used to playing at the back and adapting to certain movements.

“Midfield would be a totally different role so we will have to wait and see, one I’m willing to try if it was the case and I was asked by the manager.”

He added: “I always believed I could play at this level – but then you start to have your doubts, with the way the knee was going, that you will do so.

“It is probably a bit of a surprise how the season turned around but playing in a World Cup is everyone’s dream.

“It is the biggest tournament in the world, the calibre of players you play against are from the top, top level.

“Every kid dreams about lifting the World Cup and playing in one. It is something I’ve watched since I was a young boy so it would be a dream to play in it for me.”
