Castellazzi looking forward to Spurs

Inter's goalkeeper Luca Castellazzi insists he is looking forward to facing Tottenham in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The 35-year-old is due to stand in for Julio Cesar who suffered a thigh strain during Inter's match against Genoa on Friday.

Interviewed in La Gazzetta dello Sport, Castellazzi was asked if his trip to White Hart Lane represents the biggest match of his career.

"I have played so many and in all the Divisions that it's difficult to say so," he smiled.

"But making your debut as a starter in the Champions League, in an English stadium, defending the European champions' goal, doesn't happen every day.

"It seems like it was written by a screenwriter. It seems like a film. Julio Cesar is injured and Gomes is suspended.

"I have crossed Carlo Cudicini in Serie C1, I was at Monza, he was at Prato. Then in Serie B: I was at Padova, he was at Castel di Sangro.

"Finding each other again in Tottenham's match against Inter is the right reward for rising up through the ranks."
