Italy coach Prandelli cools World Cup talk for Parma's Cassano

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli admits Parma attacker Antonio Cassano is unlikely to make his World Cup squad.

There are calls for Cassano to be given a new chance after recent form.

“Cassano? He had a great Euro 2012, but then a new and different Nazionale was born, aiming towards the World Cup," said Prandelli.

“I will also evaluate Cassano, that is clear, but I must give the utmost faith in a squad that took us to the World Cup with two rounds to spare.”
