Fiorentina striker didn’t expect Italy call up
The 26-year-old stiker just returned from a serious knee injury which refused him to play regular professional football for the last two seasons but his first two Serie A appearances for the Viola this season were promising as he scored 3 goals in 2 matches.
“I was not expecting a call so early for the Azzurri, I am currently trying to recover and get 100%,” Rossi told Sky Sports.
“I try to improve myself every day and make goals because this is my job.”
Rossi’s last cap for the national team dates back to October 2011 when the Azzurri tied up a draw against Serbia.
