Genoa defender Bocchetti thrilled with Italy call-up

Genoa defender Salvatore Bocchetti is thrilled with his Italy call-up.

"This selection represents the realisation of a dream," the Naples native told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"Just last year I was in Serie B with Frosinone. To get an Azzurri cap is the ultimate milestone and it has given me immense joy.

"It is a reward for all the sacrifices I have made since I was a child."

Bocchetti has been linked with a transfer to hometown team Napoli in recent weeks.

"It could be another dream to play for my city's team, but my present is Genoa. I am happy here and I want to stay," he said.
