Sunderland midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini is determined to put in a strong season next term after his FIFA World Cup snub by Italy.

The diminutive winger was called into Cesare Prandelli's provisional 30-man squad, but will play no part in Brazil, after failing to impress the former Fiorentina boss.

Despite being cut, Giaccherini has no ill-feeling towards his international boss and hopes to come back in fine form next term and work his way back into contention/

"I was getting called-up into the national team until March," Giaccherini said.

"It's normal that I expected to be in Prandelli's 30, but the boss made his assessments, and I always thank him for what he has done for me

"I'm a bit disappointed because everyone wants to play in the World Cup, but even though I won't be on the pitch I will cheers for Italy, and always support the Azzurri.

"I do hope to get back into the national team.

"For me it's an honour."
