De Sciglio wants more Azzurri action

Milan youngster Mattia De Sciglio is keen to make another Italy squad soon, despite not featuring against England last night.

The 19-year-old defender, who has made just five appearances for Milan, received his first international call-up for the friendly in Bern last night, and although he remained on the bench for the Azzurri's 2-1 defeat, the experience has certainly whetted his appetite.

“It was a great emotion,” De Sciglio enthused in an interview with Milan channel. “Prandelli wanted great desire, even though it was just a friendly. Us young players had the opportunity to put ourselves on display, now I am going to try and make sure that this is not my only call.”

The fullback then commented on this weekend's Trofeo Berlusconi, in which Milan will face Juventus at San Siro. “For us the Trofeo Berlusconi is not a friendly. It's an important game against an opponent who want to do well after their Super Cup victory.”

The match will kick off at 7.45 GMT on Sunday evening.
