Real Madrid's Cannavaro sticking with Italy squad
"I'm disappointed because I was so pumped up and it would have been my third and final European Championship. But now I have set 2010 as my objective."
"I comforted Chiellini," Canna said. "He was in pieces, but it was important not to lose two players instead of one.
"I am a footballer and I know that these things happen and they must be taken as challenges.
"The thing that relaxes me is knowing that my colleagues are great professionals who are attached to the shirt.
"I still have such a strong desire to play and I haven't thought about quitting. I'm hoping to return in two months."
