Roma captain Francesco Totti has pulled back from talk of playing for Italy at this year's World Cup.

Totti has hinted he would be prepared to end his international exile.

"I do not know if I will return," said the 33-year-old. "I have not spoken to Lippi and I must also consider my physical state.

"Furthermore, I have to see if the team wants me. So there are many things to consider."
