Speaking on the FIGC’s outlets (via LazioNews24) ahead of the Azzurri’s match against Switzerland last night, the 27-year-old Italian midfielder described his emotions regarding the experience so far.
A fantastic feeling, it’s the first time I’ve been in this stadium with the national team shirt.
For me, it’s the first time in this squad and I think there is a fantastic chemistry.
We will play a great game, I am sure of it.
His strong Lazio performances this season are what earnt his Azzurri call-up, so this experience will be even more motivating for him once he returns to the Biancocelesti environment.
