The former Empoli player made his senior Italy debut this week, starting the 5-0 win over Liechtenstein.

“I am pleased with what I’m doing, but I must continue working, improving and this is another difficult game, so we need the right mentality,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“There will be moments when we struggle to play our football, but there are seven games coming up in three weeks and we are ready.”

In the opening eight rounds of this season, Di Lorenzo has played at right-back, centre-back and today left-back.

“Being available to help the team in any role is the foundation of my approach. I always try to give 100 per cent, wherever the Coach wants me to play.”
