“I already know where I’m going, but I don’t want to say. I know what will happen, but I won’t necessarily leave,” the 19-year-old told Sky Sport Italia 24.

“I was very excited, especially during the anthem. I can’t explain why, but I couldn’t even sing it, which for me is very strange. During the game the nerves passed and once you start playing, it all goes back to normal.
“When you play for your country, it is a joy that cannot be compared to anything else.”
