Lippi backs Sampdoria's Cassano for Italy return

Former Italy coach Marcello Lippi has urged Roberto Donadoni to name Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano in his latest Azzurri squad.

"Cassano has found a positive environment. I think he just needs to focus on improving his physical condition," said Lippi.

"If he does that, then it is only natural for him to be reconsidered for the international squad."
