Montreal Impact star Sebastien Giovinco going for Euros selection

Montreal Impact star Sebastien Giovinco wants to make Italy's Euros squad.

Giovinco feels he can win over Azzurri coach Antonio Conte.

“I do consider that," he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Some believed that I wouldn't return to the national team, but I did well here and I was called up again.

“The Coach says that he puts no limits [to his call-ups], so I know it's only going to be down to me to earn his attention.

“Last time I heard Conte? During the winter holidays, but we only crossed each other briefly.

“The different calendar in MLS may represent an advantage, but frankly it's largely an irrelevant one. Starting from today, though, I'm back in the race.

“The Coach already has some ideas, but in three months there's time enough to effect some changes.

“Knowing that I'll be called up if I do well but left home if I don't is helpful, regardless of what people may say about my peace of mind."
