Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne says he is dreaming of making Cesare Prandelli’s World Cup squad this summer.
The 22-year-old has been named in Italy’s 42-man party to undergo physical tests ahead of the tournament, something he will do today.
“This call-up from the Coach is very important because the World Cup is very close,” Insigne told reporters.
“I believe I can realise my dream of playing for the Azzurri and I am doing all I can with Napoli to make it come true.
“I am always available for the national team, every time I get a call-up from them I am very happy.”
Insigne then commented on Napoli’s win over Lazio yesterday.
“It’s a victory we needed and I think on a personal level I did well too.
“We got three very important points in order to consolidate third place. Now we need to think about two matches with Udinese and Inter before the Coppa Italia final.”
