Pazzini wants Italy starting place alongside Sampdoria teammate Cassano

As the Azzurri build up to Tuesday evening’s big match in Genoa against Serbia, Sampdoria striker Giampaolo Pazzini has hinted to coach Cesare Prandelli that he deserves to start at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport from the national team’s training base at Coverciano, the 26-year-old striker told reporters that: “will I start on Tuesday? Well I don’t know, but it is at my home stadium and it would be beautiful”.
He also used the interview to try to convince Prandelli that he should be in serious contention for a starting berth by explaining that: “for me to play alongside my teammate Antonio Cassano would be perfect as he knows my game and I know his, we have a great understanding and we make a perfect combination”.
