Ghana defender Daniel Opare claims heâ€™s comfortable at playing both the right and left back positions in the Black Stars.
The 23-year-old is seen as a natural right-back but has been used in a make-shift left-back role when representing his country.
Opare, who plays for Belgium side Standard Liege, was drafted into the left-back role position during the World Cup first leg 6-1 demolishing of Egypt in Kumasi in October last year where he excelled.
However the former Real Madrid youth star claims he can play Â both roles with no difficulties.
â€œI can play both roles. I have no difficult with it at all,â€ he told Happy FM
â€œI have played at the right and left back positions many times and so I have no issues with that at all.
â€œAnywhere they put me, I can deliver. As far as Iâ€™m concerned, thatâ€™s the most important thing.
â€œAt Standard Liege, I have played at the two positions on a number of times.
â€œEven at Ashantigold, I was a central defender. And so for me anywhere you put me at the back, Iâ€™m comfortable.â€
Opareâ€™s versatility puts him shades ahead of his competitors ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
He is seen as a key figure of the current Black Stars squad and likely to make the countryâ€™s Â squad to the global showpiece.
