Fiorentina fullback Biraghi delighted to be part of Italy squad

Fiorentina fullback Cristiano Biraghi is delighted to be part of the Italy squad.

He feels his game suits the system of coach Roberto Mancini.

Biraghi said, “We need to grow and we'll try to get the result because starting on the right footing is crucial.

“The competition? The more competition there is, the better. From that, our individual performances improve.

“We all represent a nation and we're all working towards an objective. More than competition, it's a way for us to play better.

“The CT? I think he's done well to adapt to all the characteristics of the players and exploit them, pushing the left-back forward for example.

“For me, it's fine like this. My characteristics are able to come out, but I think it suits the whole team too."
