Hellas Verona striker Luca Toni would love to get a call up to Italy's World Cup squad.

There is a clamour for the veteran to be handed an Azzurri return given his form this season.

“I am thinking about doing well. Then it is for Prandelli to decide,” Toni said.

“For me, it would be a pleasure and an honour to go to the World Cup, but whatever happens there would be no issue.

“For me it was a good way to begin 2014, I am very happy to have scored and for this win. Hopefully this will be a great year.

“We ended 2013 very well and we have come out [in 2014] strongly. We had a great game, picking up three important points.”
