Atalanta playmaker Cigarini shocked by Italy call

Atalanta midfielder Luca Cigarini admits he's shocked by his call-up to the Italy squad.

The playmaker was named in the Azzurri party last night for their last two Euro 2012 qualifiers against Serbia and Northern Ireland.

"I'm very happy with my call up," the midfielder, currently on loan from Napoli, told the club's website.

"I have to be honest and say that I didn't really expect this, but I think it is the right reward for what Atalanta have done so far this season."
