Roma's Totti pondering Italy retirement U-turn

Francesco Totti is considering performing a U-turn and making himself available to the Italy national team again.

• Roberto Gotta: Lippi's lucky omens

The Roma captain brought an end to his Azzurri career in July 2006 shortly after helping his country win the World Cup in Germany.

Former Italy coach Roberto Donadoni attempted to lure Totti out of retirement for Euro 2008 but was unsuccessful. However, Totti has now opened the door to the possibility.

When asked if he was willing to come out of international retirement, the 33-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport: ''It depends on what my condition will be and on (coach Marcello) Lippi's selection. I owe Lippi so much.''

When asked about Totti, Lippi claimed he would not rule out calling up the forward.

"Totti is a great person and a great player," Lippi told reporters on Tuesday. "I know there will be controversies (about selections) between now and June. I enjoy them, bring them on. I'm not excluding anything. Up to now, no one has ever said no to my national team."

Totti, who has scored nine goals in 58 matches for Italy, has struggled with injuries in recent seasons. Earlier this year he was sidelined for four months with a knee injury and he is currently out of action with another knee problem.

Italy secured their place at next year's finals in South Africa with a 2-2 draw against Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.
