Having the versatility to play a number of positions across the park is becoming the standard in elite football, Socceroo veteran Mark Milligan admits.

A staple in the Australian midfield, Milligan was pushed into defence at centre back in the Socceroos' friendly against England on Saturday, earning praise from coach Ange Postecoglou for his ability to adapt.

"You need to be able to do a variety of different things, and play a variety of roles," Milligan said while visiting a primary school in Sydney's east on Wednesday.
