Totti Would be 'Proud' to Represent Italy Again

MOST COMMENTED

AS Roma legend Francesco Totti says he would be proud to receive a call from Italy coach Cesare Prandelli to represent the Azzurri at the World Cup this summer. Totti, 37, is enjoying yet another good season for the Giallorossi, who are second in Serie A, leading to talk of a possible return to the national team.

"If Prandelli were to call me then I would be proud," the Roma captain told Sky Sports Italia. "I'd be happy, because the World Cup at Brazil would not come around again for me. But, I've always said that I will have to see how I am physically, if I would be all right or not. That's the main thing."

Totti also believes that his Roma teammates Mattia Destro and Alessandro Florenzi should be selected. "To the World Cup I would call Destro and Florenzi — they are two players that are good for the group, that make the difference when playing,” he said. “So, I think that they are players that absolutely should be called up. But, it is not for me to decide."
