Inzaghi named in Italy's World Cup training camp

ROME, April 30 (Reuters) - AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi has moved a step closer to claiming a place in Italy's World Cup squad after he was selected to take part in a pre-World Cup training camp.

"(Italy coach Marcello) Lippi has called me. I'm going to the pre-World Cup training camp in Rome (on Tuesday)," the player told Italy's SKY television after scoring both goals in Milan's 2-0 win over Livorno on Sunday.

Lippi's choice of players for the two-day training camp in the Italian capital on Tuesday and Wednesday should provide a good indicator of the players he will take to Germany in June.

Inzaghi's inclusion is something of a personal triumph for the striker who has come back into form this season after two years of knee and ankle injuries.

The 32-year-old, who has scored 21 goals in 48 appearances for the Azzurri, has not played for the national team since scoring twice in a 4-0 rout of Azerbaijan in October 2003 and has never played under Lippi, who took over from Giovanni Trapattoni following Euro 2004.

"I'm pleased. To come back into the national side after two years' absence is something extraordinary," Inzaghi said.

"I've always been out because of injury. Now I've got a big desire to play.

"The national team is special for every player. I'll do my best to train hard, to fit in with my team mates, even if many of them already know me well."
