Jamie Mackie has told Scotland boss Craig Levein that he is prepared to adapt his game to any formation.
The Queens Park Rangers forward was handed his debut on Friday in a contest which saw Levein line up with an unusual 4-6-0 system.
Rangers' in-form Kenny Miller was dropped to the bench to help accommodate the tactical re-think, with Mackie coming in to fill a wider role.
The approach failed to produce the required result as the Czech Republic claimed a 1-0 win in Euro 2012 qualifying, but Mackie was delighted to have made his international bow.
"I would have loved a result for my first cap, but it hasn't turned out that way and I'm very disappointed with the result in the end," he said.
"I was delighted to get my first cap and I would have played in any role for the country. The players are there to do a job.
"You're playing for your country and you'll play wherever you're told to play. The manager selected a team and a formation and you've got to play to that."
Mackie is hoping he will be offered another opportunity to impress on Tuesday, when Scotland face world champions Spain, and he will be more than happy to fill a role on the wing again if asked to do so.
"I'd be delighted if I played on Tuesday and, if I do, I'll play wherever I'm told to play," he added.
"Whoever I play against, I'm very confident in my own ability and I'll give anyone a game on my night.
"Hopefully I get the chance to show that. And hopefully we'll get a few more chances offensively."
While holding out hope that he will figure against Spain, Mackie does not buy into the belief that he has directly replaced Miller in the Scotland side.
"I believe I was picked on merit and I'm not too familiar with Kenny Miller playing in a wide role like that," he said.
"Kenny Miller is a great footballer and he's got a great goalscoring record. I don't feel like I'm taking anyone's place.
"The manager picks the team and you get picked on merit. I didn't slot straight in up front so I don't see it like that."
