Roma stalwart Totti moved into second on the all-time list of leading scorers in Serie A by netting his 226th top-flight goal in Sunday's 2-0 win over Parma.

The 36-year-old has not played for Italy since winning the 2006 World Cup, but Prandelli will keep Totti in his thoughts for next year's finals in Brazil.

"Talking about Francesco Totti, Carlo Mazzone (his former coach) is right," said Prandelli.

"If, a month before the World Cup he feels like he does now, physically and mentally, we are obliged to keep him under consideration.

"It was the same with Antonio Di Natale before the European Championship, even if you didn't believe me.

"It's the same for Antonio Cassano. Against Tottenham, he was sensational."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
