Liverpool striker Fabio Borini is looking forward to turning out for Italy U21 against Sweden.

Borini has called for focus as the Italian Under-21 side try to qualify for the 2013 European Championship.

“We will be playing for our future, but in the knowledge of our strength,” said the player who is back in the Under-21 set-up after recent call ups to the full national side.

“These are really important games, matches that have to be prepared for with the utmost concentration.

“It won’t be easy as there are no easy games in football. Just remember what happened against Belarus when we won the first leg 2-0 and lost the return 3-0…”
