Brazilian Amauri eyes Italy World Cup chance

Juventus striker Amauri has revealed his firm desire to play in next year's World Cup for Italy. The 29-year-old Brazilian player is in the process of acquiring Italian citizenship. "I hope to make it to South Africa," Amauri said. "If the call-up arrives, I will be honoured to wear the Azzurri colours. "I have chosen Italy as opposed to Brazil because it's where my football career took off."

Italy coach Marcello Lippi had hoped to have Amauri available for selection for the final two World Cup qualifiers against Ireland and Cyprus. However, recent problems with Amauri's passport application have seen the striker's chances of a call-up by Lippi decrease.

Reports in Italy claim that Amauri will have to wait a further few months before the process is completed. When asked about Amauri's situation, Lippi said: "I will only talk about Amauri once he has his Italian passport."
