Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says AS Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo will start against Bulgaria.
Juventus midfielder Sebastian Giovinco will also get his chance.
“We will be playing in a very difficult atmosphere,” said Prandelli. “We are the team to beat at the moment and that has become very apparent over the last few days.”
The Italy Boss also commented on Roma’s burly forward and Juventus’s diminutive striker:
“They are both on form and in great condition to play tomorrow night against the Bulgarians. I knew on Monday that I would be punting on them.”
