Cagliari’s Davide Biondini has been in superb touch with the Sardinian outfit this term, which consequently earned him a maiden call-up to the Italy national team, for the games against Netherlands and Sweden respectively.
To make the squad was an effort in itself for the red-head; however he was fortunate enough to earn his first cap in the Azzurri colours, as he played out a 10 minute cameo in the 0-0 draw with the Dutch.
“I was hoping to get lucky tonight, and my dream came true,” an overjoyed Biondini expressed to Rai.
“I am certainly very excited to have taken part in the game, and there are so many people that I’d like to thank.
“My team-mates gave me the confidence to relax, which allowed me to express myself in a positive way when on the field.
“Now, we are looking towards the match on Wednesday, which will be another good opportunity for us.”
