Italy recall for Quagliarella?

Fabio Quagliarella has scored in each of the last seven Serie A rounds and for Sampdoria at the age of 36 could get an Italy recall.

The veteran is in the form of his life, finding the net 10 times in 16 appearances, with five assists on top.

In the last seven games, the striker scored eight times and provided an assist.

He became the first Italian to be on target for seven consecutive Serie A matches since Antonio Di Natale for Udinese in 2010.

No previous Samp player had achieved this run, as Barison managed six in 1963-64.

According to some reports, a return to the Italy squad is not out of the question and Roberto Mancini is giving it some thought.

Quagliarella turns 36 next month and has been offered a new contract to stay at Sampdoria.

Although he has scored six goals in 26 Italy caps, but was last called up for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Norway in October 2015.

The most recent appearance for the Azzurri was a 1-1 friendly draw against Romania on November 17, 2010.
