Pazzini trusts in Cassano

Italy striker Giampaolo Pazzini is confident that his former Sampdoria teammate Antonio Cassano can help end his scoring drought at international level.

The 26-year-old has found the net just once in 15 games for his country and needs to translate his club form into goals for Italy.

"I am not saying that I lack a goal, but I have the desire the score another.

"Pressure? There is no pressure, but I care about scoring again for Italy. Also because it's a great period for me and I don't want to stop now.

"I spent two great years with Cassano. We had fun. We hope to continue doing so here. I'd be happy if he made me score, but anyone's fine. The important thing is scoring."
