Genoa striker Luca Toni says Italy coach Cesare Prandelli knows his number.

Toni hopes that by finding his form with the Grifone, he can work his way back into the Italy squad.

"Playing for the Nazionale is always great. I have to try to work as hard as possible, score many goals and pose the question for the Coach.

"It will then be his decision. After all, Prandelli knows me and he knows what I can give to the team."

The two worked together at Fiorentina before Toni's transfer to Bayern Munich, where he earned the Capocannoniere crown and became the first Italian to win the Golden Boot as Europe's top scorer.
