Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci is confident Italy can rely on their Bianconeri players.

The Bianconeri won the Scudetto and have the strongest back line in Serie A this season, conceding only 20 goals, so form the basis of Cesare Prandelli's Italy line-up.

"We at Juve were impatient to reach the Nazionale and got here earlier than the deadline," Bonucci told Tuttosport.

"After an extraordinary season with the Juve jersey, I hope to be part of the final squad of 23 and maybe even play alongside my teammates on international duty. It is only right that the Coach confirms the system that worked well in qualifying, though."
