Giovanni Di Lorenzo thanked Napoli Coach Carlo Ancelotti for giving him the opportunity to make his Italy debut. “He put his faith in me.”
The right-back played all of this evening’s 5-0 Azzurri victory away to Liechtenstein and provided an assist for Andrea Belotti’s second header.
“It was important to continue the winning streak, so I’m happy. There is a good group dynamic, so it’s easy for the newcomers to settle in too,” Di Lorenzo told Rai Sport.
“I found out this morning that I’d be starting, I am happy for the team. I owe Ancelotti a great deal, as he put his faith in me at Napoli from the start and now it’s my duty to keep giving my all. I have to do well at club level if I am to get recalled by Italy.”
