Osvaldo chasing more goals against Bulgaria
8:16pm Sunday 1st September 2013 in Sport
Dani Osvaldo will be aiming for more goals against Bulgaria after being named in the Italian international squad today.
The new Saints striker scored his first two international goals for Italy in a World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria in Sofia last September.
Now he has been named in the Italy squad for the forthcoming return fixture against Bulgaria this Friday as well as the home game against the Czech Republic next Tuesday.
As a result, Osvaldo becomes the 13th Saints player to be selected for international duty this week.
Osvaldo has scored three times in nine appearances for the senior Italian side, with his last goal coming in another World Cup qualifying win in Armenia in October 2012.
Despite hitting 16 Serie A goals for Roma last season, he failed to be selected for his country’s Confederations Cup squad in Brazil.
But he won a recall for the recent 2-1 home friendly loss to Argentina in the absence of Mario Balotelli.
