Genoa striker Alberto Gilardino was frustrated after scoring in Italy's clash with Bulgaria.

Gilardino scored his 19th Italy goal to beat Bulgaria, but is still “a little angry, as I could’ve scored a second.”

The Genoa striker is just one shy of 1982 World Cup winner Paolo Rossi’s total for the Azzurri.

“I am a little angry, as I could’ve scored a second today and matched Rossi’s tally. I should’ve been sharper and gone right round the goalkeeper,” he told Rai Sport.
