Sampdoria's Palombo & Del Neri Relying On Cassano's Magic Against Inter

Both player and coach are relying on Cassano to make the difference against Inter...
Sampdoria midfielder Angelo Palombo is hoping to celebrate his birthday against Inter tomorrow as he calls on Antonio Cassano to bring out his party tricks.

The Italian international admits that he is relishing the challenge of locking horns with the league leaders and will do everything in his power to make life difficult for the Nerazzurri.

"We have put the loss to Fiorentina behind us and we are only thinking about tomorrow's game against Inter," Palombo told Sky Sport Italia.

"It will be hard as they are the stronger team. Anyhow, we will try to make their life difficult."

The combative midfielder has called upon Cassano to bring out the party piece against the Champions.

"We have Cassano. He is playing really well. He is no longer doing his 'Cassanate'. I think he has every chance of going to the World Cup."

Coach Luigi Del Neri is also relying on the 'Talentino' for glory.

"I am counting on the play of Cassano. Inter are strong as they have strengthened well, but we will play our game," added the coach.
