Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna admits his Italy call took him by surprise.
Ogbonna has already starred for the Under-21 side, but was added to Cesare Prandelliâs squad when Alberto Aquilani pulled out injured.
âI was surprised by this call and I absolutely did not expect it,â confessed Ogbonna.
âI am very happy and excited, as itâs like living a dream. Giorgio Chiellini was the first to compliment me on getting here, as we play in the same city.
âI have known him and Andrea Ranocchia from our Under-21 days, so they helped me to settle in.â
