Immobile reveals World Cup 'goal'

Ciro Immobile celebrated his wedding on Saturday, but the striker is still thinking about making the World Cup squad.

The Torino striker got married this afternoon, with the national team on a short break from training ahead of the tournament in Brazil.

But the goalscorer has conceded that it is still his dream to make the final 23, with the hard work starting tomorrow.

“We were fortunate enough to choose a date that would not impact on me being with the national team,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“However, I have realised my first dream, which was to marry my wife.

“Now I hope to achieve my second goal – to go to the World Cup wearing the Italy shirt.

“I’m working hard every day to try and convince the Coach that I can be a part of the full squad.”
