Roma captain Francesco Totti has backed Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano for an Italy return.

Totti played with Cassano at Roma and is pleased to see his former teammate doing so well for Samp.

"Antonio is a good lad. I would select him for La Nazionale if he were to change his attitude a little off the pitch," Totti explained.

Asked if he would consider coming out of international retirement, Totti replied: "I will speak about it with Lippi."
