Udinese attacker Antonio Di Natale has insisted that he wants to play as a central striker at Euro 2012.

The Italian has made the Italy squad for the European Championships after spending two years away from the national team, and he is confident that he can play a role.

"I think Mario Balotelli and I could do well alongside each other, while there is also [Antonio] Cassano who is a phenomenon. We can all prove our worth," he told reporters.

"Although Balotelli, Cassano and myself have never been used together, I think we can co-exist. We're all here for Prandelli. Obviously I'd like to play as much as possible. My best position? I like to be used as a centre-forward now. I was better out wide when I was younger.

"I've done a lot with Udinese by winning the Capocannoniere and getting into Europe. Scoring 80 goals in two years seems to be a good achievement."

Di Natale has scored 10 goals in 36 games for Italy.
