England manager Roy Hodgson says the team's attacking philosophy will continue in their next 2014 Fifa World Cup game against Uruguay.

Hodgson explains that Wayne Rooney does not yet know if he will be playing or in which position, but that all England's strikers are flexible and comfortable wherever they play.

Following England's 2-1 defeat by Italy in the heat and humidity of tropical Manaus, Hodgson believes the cooler conditions in the coastal city of Sao Paulo where they will face Uruguay on Thursday will be a "bit kinder" to his side.
