The Milan goalkeeper, who is not even assured of a first team shirt at San Siro, is hoping for an Azzurri recall on the eve of Prandelli's unveiling tomorrow.
"I didn't want to be the third-choice 'keeper. I preferred to train with Milan rather than going away for 10 days and then sitting in the stands.
"However, had Marcello Lippi called me during the last two years then I would have happily responded to the call.
"And if Prandelli picks me then I'll run to join the squad."
