Marchisio celebrated his first ever senior Italy goal and reassured Juventus fans over his injury.
“I’m alright, it’s a little sprain, but hasn’t even swollen up,” said the midfielder after limping off with a left ankle problem during the 1-1 draw in Serbia.
He netted within the opening 56 seconds, following on from last week’s brace against AC Milan in Serie A.
“My teammates thought I’d toe-poked it, but it was with the inside of my foot, as I tried to angle the finish as much as possible.
“I said yesterday that I wanted this goal and it arrived in a difficult arena. The team played very well, always tried not to give the ball away and held out under Serbia’s pressure. In a week when we didn’t have much time to work, we still put in a fine performance.
“I’m in good shape aside from the goals and things are going well with both Juventus and Italy.”
