Antonio Cassano may have to quit AC Milan to find a place in Cesare Prandelli's Italy squad.

Prandelli made it clear yesterday that from now on he would only be able to call-up players who were featuring regularly with their club sides.

"From August those individuals who don't play that often will find it tough to be selected for Italy," he said.

"Cassano may have to start using his elbows to find his space in the Milan team. In general, players lose their self belief when they don't play that often."
