Sweden midfielder Sebastian Larsson has revealed that he would be happy to play anywhere for his country during Euro 2012 as competition for places heats up.

The Sunderland star are likely to start on either flank, and although he has stated his preference for the right-hand berth, he insisted that he would accept any role in the team.

"Obviously, I'm more used to playing on the right. If I play on the left it's easier to come into the middle and have a few shots of my own," he said according to The Daily Mail.

"As long as you get to play, you're happy."

Eric Hamren's side face the co-hosts Ukraine on Monday, with Kim Kallstrom, Anders Svensson and Pontus Wernbloom competiting for the central midfield slots.

The latter believes that healthy competition for places can only be good for the players, but admitted that he would be disappointed to miss out on game-time.

"It's good there's competition for the sake of the team. But if you don't get to play, you're always disappointed. That's how it is."

Ukraine and Sweden kick off at 20:45CET on June 11.
