Austria defender David Alaba cannot wait to pit his wits against Italy as his nation make their first appearance in the knockout stage of the European Championship.
The Real Madrid man said: “It’s a dream come true for each and every one of us, playing at Wembley against Italy in the round of 16.
“It would be incredible to reach the quarter-final in Munich.
“That would be unbelievable for all of us – another dream come true. But we’re not thinking about that yet. Our focus is on the game.
“It’s a special game and we want to do well.
“I’ve won at Wembley, so I have very good memories of this stadium.
“I expect a wonderful game and I remember the atmosphere from the Champions League final, but Saturday will be special for Austria, and we can’t wait to get out there.
“I don’t need to tell the lads how to treat certain situations. Some might ask me for advice, but we have others who have played at this level, and I’m not concerned.”
