Bright Happy To Adapt
Millie Bright talks about how she adapts to playing in different positions on the pitch
We all hate it when our coach makes us work on our weaker foot – and sometimes we don’t really like being played out of position.
But Lionesses newcomer Millie Bright has proved how important it can be to be adaptable and be able to play in more than one position.
The Chelsea youngster made her England debut as a substitute against Belgium last September, when she came on up front.
She was in midfield against Germany in March and has been partnering Steph Houghton in the heart of England’s defence at Euro 2017.
Bright said: “I don’t mind whether I play at centre back or in central midfield. I think I adapt quite quickly.
“I’ve played in both positions for my club, but mainly at the back. We play three at the back at Chelsea so it’s a little bit different.
“But you just need to make sure you switch on whatever position you’re in and get all the information you need beforehand.
“Then it’s just about going out there and doing it.”
England have won both Group D matches so far, against Scotland and Spain, and a point against Portugal on Thursday night will seal a spot in the quarter finals.
