Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas says AC Milan striker Antonio Cassano would be a starter for Spain.

Casillas was asked about who from the Italy squad would he like in the Spain team and he nominated his former Real teammate.

"He's out of his mind, but has a great talent. You could see from his time at Real, he is one that has unlimited ability," said Casillas.

"And I was disappointed that he left us.''
