Teddy Sheringham: 'Play Steven Gerrard at right-back'

Teddy Sheringham suggests that Steven Gerrard would be the best choice to play right-back for England against Poland.

Former England international Teddy Sheringham has urged manager Roy Hodgson to consider deploying Steven Gerrard as a right-back during tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Poland.

With Glen Johnson out injured and Kyle Walker suspended, it is widely expected that either Phil Jones or Chris Smalling will be handed the responsibility in that position at Wembley.

"You could always put Steven Gerrard there because then you've got delivery coming from the right-back, which might be essential," he told talkSPORT.

"We've got great delivery from the left in Baines and with Gerrard [on the right], it might release [Jack] Wilshere or [Michael] Carrick to play, then you've got someone threading a lovely ball through from that position as well."

The Three Lions will automatically qualify for next year's World Cup in Brazil with a victory over Poland.
