Giovinco hat-trick calls Conte

Toronto FC's Sebastian Giovinco shines with a hat-trick against Orlando City and candidates himself for an Azzurri spot.

The Atomic Ant may have appeared to be at a low point in his career when he left Juventus for Major League Soccer, but his performances are calling for international attention.

Toronto's 4-1 victory over Orlando City yesterday evening takes them up to third place in the league and was largely due to Giovinco's three goals.

The striker is now the top scorer in MLS with 16 goals in 21 games and is already at his second hat-trick. He has also notched 10 assists.

Many believe that Giovinco should now be considered a serious candidate for a call-up in Antonio Conte's Italy team with a view to Euro 2016 next year.
