PSG midfielder Marco Verratti was happy to score for Italy in their 1-1 draw with Holland.
The Azzurri snatched a 1-1 draw in Amsterdam in stoppages with Verratti, but didnâ€™t get a shot on target before shelving the 4-3-3 for a 4-3-1-2.
â€śI am very happy, above all as we were able to get back on track. Of course Iâ€™m also happy with my first Italy goal,â€ť he said.
â€śWe went very close in the last 20 minutes and I think the draw was the right result for this game.
â€śGila called for the ball and heâ€™s very good at protecting it, so I immediately gave it to him. I thank him for helping me to score this goal.â€ť
Verratti came off the bench, but was asked if he would push into the starting XI soon.
â€śI donâ€™t think about these things, as being 19 I am more than happy to just be in this squad. We are together for very little time to prepare for friendlies, so we try to give our all whether itâ€™s a qualifier or a friendly. We were unlucky to lose to England and France.â€ť
