Sampdoria defender Giulio Falcone has revealed he is hoping to force his way into Giovanni Trapattoni's Italian squad.
Falcone holds Trapattoni in high regards, having worked with him during his time with Fiorentina.
"I worked with Trapattoni in Florence," said Falcone. "And I can guarantee you that he hasn't any qualms with using players of so-called little teams."
The stopper added he had no expectations to be included the latest Azzurri squad.
"I expected nothing from these qualification rounds, but everyone works for their own personal aims," he added.
"At this age and level of ability, a person starts to think about the national team."
