Italy coach Cesare Prandelli will hand Parma star Sebastian Giovinco another chance to prove himself this week.

Prandelli is eager to find a place for Giovinco's talent.

"It will be an important campaign for Giovinco," the former Fiorentina tactician, who replaced Marcello Lippi after World Cup 2010, said.

"He's repaying everyone for their faith in him. He's more than just an interesting player. He's also proving to be ice cool in front of goal.

"He could be the most important player on the Italian scene over the next 12 months."
