Italy national team manager Cesare Prandelli has opened the door for Sydney FC star Alessandro Del Piero to make the World Cup squad for Brazil 2014.

The former Juventus ace has not played for the Azzurri since 2008 but could still be considered along with AS Roma veteran Francesco Totti and Udinese’s Antonio di Natale.

"In March and April we will have a look at the condition of certain players like Francesco Totti, Antonio Di Natale and even Alex Del Piero," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"At that stage I don’t need to plan, but build the strongest team possible.

"We are following all players who can make a difference, Alex still has a great desire and we have to keep an eye on everyone."

Del Piero is currently preparing for the 2013/14 A-League season which kicks off on October 11 with the Sky Blues hosting Newcastle Jets in Sydney.
