Davide Santon captained Italy Under-21s to a comfortable 3-0 win over Hungary yesterday (playing against team-mate Tamas Kadar) and is now looking forward to Loftus Road next Monday night. Davide Santon: “I feel that I am ready. I am naturally both-footed. “It is no problem to play on either side as a full-back or on the right wing or left. “I am defender but if the manager asks me to attack as well, it’s not a problem. “I just want to be part of this team. “I am overjoyed still to be a Newcastle United player. “I want to win and the sooner I pull on the famous black-and-white striped shirt the better. “I can’t wait for this experience now. “Alan Pardew told me that the club have a plan to grow together. “I feel this is the right place for me now and wouldn’t have left a club like Inter if it wasn’t. “I came here because it is a big club and I felt it could benefit my career. “I’m happy that I have been given this chance. “I just want to show the Newcastle fans that I am a great player and help them continue what has been a great start to the season. “I have watched so many Premier League games on TV at home in Italy, now I just want to be part of one of those games. “Already I feel by watching these games that I will be comfortable with the pace in the Premier League.” Tamas Kadar appeared for Hungary in his first competitive action since last May. The defender was booked and was substituted after 71 minutes.
