Parma star Giovinco ready for Italy start tonight
Cesare Prandelli confirmed on Monday that the playmaker will play against Northern Ireland in Italy's final Euro 2012 Group C qualifying match and Giovinco took the time to reflect once again on his spell at Juventus.
"There is one thing that hurt me in my career - not being able to show how well I could do at Juve. In Turin I did not received many beautiful words."
Prandelli confirmed the player will start in attack alongside Antonio Cassano on Tuesday night in a second striker role.
"I've played all the roles and adapted but now this is mine - and my reward is goals. I do not think about vindication but to have fun, with the goals - I have five from five, my goal is to reach double figures."
