Udinese striker Antonio di Natale says he's ready to step in should Italy need him.

AC Milan man Antonio Cassano is recovering from minor heart surgery, while Villarreal ace Giuseppe Rossi damaged knee ligaments recently.

"At this moment Toto is just concentrating on Udinese and the club's objectives," agent Bruno Carpeggiani said.

"I'm not surprised by what he is doing though. After all, we've not only just discovered what Di Natale is capable of."
