Napoli midfielder Christian Maggio is happy with Italy coach Cesare Prandelli's policy of selecting only regular first teamers.

Maggio applauds Italy boss Prandelli's approach of calling only those who play regularly.

"Prandelli is absolutely right, as only by performing to a high standard regularly for your club can you earn the right to be called up for international duty," said the Napoli winger.

"This is why I think I will always choose a team that allows me to play regularly, otherwise I'd miss out on opportunities like this."
