Cagliari midfielder Davide Biondini was delighted with his first start for Italy in last night's friendly win over Sweden.
“It all went very well, it’s a shame I didn’t score that first half chance. It was on my left foot and I know these are things I need to improve,” said Biondini.
“It was a good game from everyone and therefore a positive signal from the entire squad.
“There are so many great champions in the side and I do take some inspiration from Gattuso, as I try to bring a little grit to the field. They are legends and we will try everything we can to achieve the same.”
