Brescia star Diamanti thrilled with Italy chance

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.

"This has been a dream for some time and that's why I am willing to play in any position," he said from Italy's Coverciano training base.

"It's 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.

"I'm 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."
