Emanuele Giaccherini is confident his move to Sunderland won't affect his Italy chances.

The winger left Juventus in the summer for Wearside.

Giaccherini said: "I spoke to (Italy coach Cesare) Prandelli and he told me to remain calm. He said he would keep calling me up, whoever I was playing for, if I continued to do well."
