Italy coach Cesare Prandelli isn't shutting the World Cup door on AS Roma captain Francesco Totti.

Totti is currently recovering from injury.

"We talked a lot about Totti," he told reporters. "But it obviously brought him bad luck.

"He's been hurt for a while, and when that happens at his age it is difficult to put a date on when he will return.

"We're waiting for him to get back on the pitch, and if he plays like he did before, we'll see."
