Brescia star Alessandro Diamanti is thrilled with his Italy call-up.
The attacking midfielder has been rewarded for his impressive form in Serie A this season.
‚ÄúThis has been a dream for some time and that‚Äôs why I am willing to play in any position,‚ÄĚ he said from Italy‚Äôs Coverciano training base.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a nice feeling to be a part of this. The last time I was here I was training with the Serie C [Third Division] national side, therefore it shows how far I have come in the last few years.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm not expecting anything in particular from these three days, I just want to enjoy it as much as I can as I think I deserve this call up.‚ÄĚ
