Prandelli leaves door open for Totti

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has suggested that he may be willing to offer Roma captain Francesco Totti an international recall for this summer's European Championship.

Totti, 35, officially retired from international football in 2007, a year after helping the Azzurri win the 2006 World Cup in Germany - with the final victory over France his last game for the national team.

But with strikers Antonio Cassano and Giuseppe Rossi doubtful for this summer's tournament through illness and injury respectively, Prandelli could recall Totti.

"I will evaluate the physical condition of the players at the end of the season,'' Prandelli told RAI TV.

"We began the campaign with a project and if there are players with great character in good shape then they will be taken into consideration.

"Does that include Totti? Why not, if he's in good shape.''

Totti has scored four goals in 14 league appearances for Roma this season and made history on Saturday when scoring twice in Roma's 5-1 triumph over Cesena to reach 211 Serie A goals for the Giallorossi - surpassing former AC Milan striker Gunnar Nordahl's record tally of goals for a single Italian club.
