Ledesma has Italy ambition

Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma has admitted that he hopes to be a part of Italy’s Euro 2012 campaign.

The 29-year-old, despite being born in Argentina, was capped by Azzurri boss Cesare Prandelli in late 2010.

Although the midfielder has lost his place in the thoughts of Prandelli since that November friendly against Romania over a year ago, he wants to get back into the Giro Azzurro.

“The objective is to get Lazio into the Champions League and to play in European competition on a yearly basis.”
