Former Italy captain Cannavaro preparing to hand back World Cup

Former Juventus defender Fabio Cannavaro is preparing to hand back the World Cup on behalf of Italy.

It is not yet clear whether he'll hand it to the winner after the final whistle or deposit the trophy on the sidelines before the game.

"This is certainly a nice gesture," the Al Ahli signing told Sky Sport Italia before officially retiring from international duty.

"I was given this box containing the World Cup, which I consider magical, as it holds the dreams of every football player.

"It'll be an emotional moment, and a tough one, as this trophy gave us so many extraordinary feelings."
