Totti has not worn the Azzurri jersey since the 2006 World Cup Final in Berlin, at first taking a year’s Sabbatical to work through his injury worries, then opting to retire from international duty.
But now the Roma attacker has declared: “I will make the decision in April.
“If Lippi calls, I’m fit and the squad wants me, then I will go to the World Cup. I think the young players would be pleased to have me there.
“My rapport with Lippi goes beyond football. I will never forget what he did for me in Germany.
“He didn’t know me personally, I had always been his ‘enemy’ on the field when he was at Juventus, but he waited for me and had faith. I really can never forget that.”
