Hellas Verona striker Luca Toni isn't giving up on World Cup selection.

The 36-year-old hitman scored the only goal in Verona's 1-0 victory over Chievo Verona.

"Why not?" Toni replied to a question about making the Italy squad. "After all, if strikers who scored fewer goals than me this season are being considered, then it makes sense I should be too."
