Toronto FC midfielder Sebastian Giovinco thrilled with Italy recall

Toronto FC midfielder Sebastian Giovinco is thrilled with his recall to the Italy squad.

The Atomic Ant and New York City FC star Andrea Pirlo are the first MLS players to receive an international call for Italy.

“I am very happy. Given my performances, I kind of expected the call," Giovinco told the official Toronto website.

“It means I have worked well up to now, but the hardest thing is to maintain this form and I hope to continue."

The Azzurri are in Euro 2016 qualifiers against Malta on September 3 and Bulgaria on September 6.

“It's important for me and all the other players to feature for Italy. These are two difficult games, but Italy has to win because it's our tradition."
