Giuseppe Rossi was pleased to see so many of his old Under-21 teammates progressing to the senior Italy squad.
The average age of the line-up this evening was 26, compared to the 29 that went to the 2010 World Cup.
“There's always been a good connection with (Sebastian) Giovinco and we also had (Riccardo) Montolivo, (Alberto) Aquilani and (Antonio) Nocerino from the Under-21 side,” he said of tonight's 2-0 friendly win in Ukraine.
