Francesco Totti: Could return to the Italy fold

The 37-year-old has led the Giallorossi to seven wins in as many games in Serie A, and Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has said he may look to call up the forward for next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

Totti, who retired from the national team shortly after the Azzurri's 2006 World Cup triumph in Germany, said to Gazzetta dello Sport: "For the time being I'm thinking only about Roma.

"But you can never say never."

Totti has scored nine goals in 58 appearances for Italy.

The Italians, who have two World Cup qualifying games coming up against Denmark and Armenia, have already booked their place in next year's tournament.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
