• Reached 100 Serie A outings for Juventus midway through an impressive 2011/12 campaign in which he registered a career-best goal tally as the unbeaten Bianconeri won the title.

• Played every game at UEFA EURO 2012 and impressed as Italy reached the final, ultimately falling to a 4-0 defeat by Spain.

• Scored twice in eight UEFA Champions League appearances as Juve progressed to the quarter-finals of the 2012/13 competition, only to be defeated by eventual winners FC Bayern München. Gained consolation with a second successive Scudetto the same season.
