NUFC Star Gets International Recall

10 years ago

A player who has arguably been Newcastle’s best and most consistent player this season, has had an overdue recall to his national squad.

Davide Santon has been in inspirational from and is recalled to the Italy squad which will play France, and possibly Yohan Cabaye, on Wednesday in Parma.

Santon represented Italy whilst only a teenager and this season we have all seen a reproduction of that kind of form.

While attention is largely focussed on the likes of Cabaye, Ba, Tiote and others when there is a transfer window approaching. A massive measure of Newcastle’s progress, or lack of, could well be measured in whether they can retain the services of the full-back.

At times the former Inter Milan defender makes the game look far too easy and he epitomises the modern day full-back; quick, strong, tall  and able to attack as well as defend.

Alan Pardew has been shown to have played a blinder in terms of easing Santon into the first team, if Newcastle can retain this calibre of player then it will be happy days ahead.
