Diamanti dreams of the Nazionale

Following his sensational goal against Juventus, Alessandro Diamanti confirms he's “dreaming of the Nazionale.”

The Brescia star returned from a three-match ban for insulting the referee and scored a fantastic strike in last night's 1-1 draw.

“I did practice that type of shot quite often in training and I won't say that a normal goal came out of it,” smiled the former West Ham United man.

“At times it works out and at times it doesn't.”

Diamanti said when he returned to Serie A that it was partly in order to improve his visibility for international duty.

“Cesare Prandelli makes his decisions, but I am dreaming of the Nazionale like every other Italian player.

“If it happens, then I'll be happy. If not, I'll just carry on.”
