Chelsea and Italy midfielder Jorginho admitted he dreams of winning the Ballon d'Or after he was among the 30 candidates for France Football's player of the year award.
"What kid doesn't dream of winning the Ballon d'Or? Dreaming something small or something big is the same, so better to dream something big," Jorginho said at the press conference ahead of Italy's Nations League third-place play-off final against Belgium in Turin.
"It would be something incredible, to find the words to explain what it would mean to me is difficult. It's something that, when I started playing, was so far away that, now that I'm so close, it's already something incredibly nice," he added.
"Things change quickly, I was working well at Chelsea and then we had this year where everything went well. With everyone's support, I feel very calm and happy.
Jorginho is targeting a starting XI against Belgium in a game that, despite having little relevance, represents an opportunity "to get back to winning ways".
"We've lost a game, but we want to win again. Here, we have this mentality and, for me, after the last setback, Sunday's game represents an opportunity," he said.
