Destro not thinking of Euro 2012

Mattia Destro is remaining cool as whispers start to circulate that he could be a surprise inclusion in Italy’s Euro 2012 squad.

The Siena striker, co-owned with Genoa, has netted 11 goals in 29 League games so far this term.

Now not only is he being linked with Italian giants such as Inter and Juventus, but there are claims that he may even get a European Championship call.

“I’ve always said that the Azzurri jersey is a dream, but I have to remain with my feet on the ground,” he stated.

“For now all I am thinking about is ending the season well with Siena and working hard for the Italian Under-21 side which is certainly an important stage for me.”

Destro, 21, is uncapped at full level but saw Azzurrini teammate Fabio Borini win his debut with Italy earlier this year in the 1-0 defeat to USA.
