Palermo defender Leandro Rinaudo admits he dreams of making his Italy debut.

Rinaudo is regarded as one of Serie A's brightest young defenders, but is yet to be invited to join the Italy squad by coach Roberto Donadoni.

The defender said: "I would be lying to you if I said that the National team wasn't in my thoughts, the Azzurri would be a dream come true, but at the moment I think exclusively about Palermo and doing well in the Rosanero shirt.

"Then, whatever comes after that, I'll be ready."
