Roma fullback Spinazzola delighted to be back in Italy squad


Roma fullback Leonardo Spinazzola is delighted to be back in the Italy squad.

Spinazzola returns after his Achilles injury at last summer's Euros.

"Thankfully, I never lost my smile, but it was a very difficult period after the injury. Some days I just sat there staring into space," Spinazzola told La Domenica Sportiva.

“I was not afraid that I wouldn't get back to playing, but I did fear I wouldn't be the same player as before. Now that I'm back, I'm in Seventh Heaven. My wife, children and friends helped so much.

“Roberto Mancini and Jose Mourinho also helped me to feel calm, they made sure I never gave up."
