Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici has laughed off reports he is set to switch his allegiance to the Italian national side.
Federici holds dual nationality with Italy and Australia but has no plans to ditch his place in the Socceroos camp.
He said: "I didn't make the comments I've seen in the papers, but it was quite amusing to read them. I got a few texts from home telling me about it but I just laughed it off."
He added: "I could go down that road if I wanted as my father and his family are all Italian - but I'm Aussie through and through."
