Palermo's Georgian hitman Levan Mchedlidze wants to bring down Italy and thinks his side is capable of springing a huge shock.

Italy may have made hard work of seeing off Cyprus, but the Azzurri are overwhelming favourites to beat Georgia in Udine tomorrow night.

However, despite their 2-1 defeat against Ireland, Georgia's players are upbeat and Mchedlidze wants to seize his chance.

“I'd love to score against Italy as it would help make me known across the world,” the 18-year-old told the Corriere dello Sport.

“We want to win against the Italians because they are a great side and we will really make it tough for them.

“We were unlucky against Ireland but we want to make up for that in Udine.”
