Italy coach Marcello Lippi says he would consider Roma captain Francesco Totti if he ended his international exile.

"I don't exclude anything. I will have to make technical judgements on the group of players that I now have available to me," Lippi explained.

"And I'll also be looking among the players that aren't here, and also names that have never been made [in relation to the Italy squad], to see if they have the necessary technical characteristics to play in my national team."
