Roberto Donadoni says he may call Francesco Totti up for the March qualifiers.
Roberto Donadoni says he is considering calling Francesco Totti up for Italy's European qualifier in March.
The Roma forward took a break from playing for Italy after their triumphant World Cup campaign.
Totti, who had metal plates inserted in an ankle injury, had previously insisted he would only return to the national team when he was ready.
But the Italy coach says if Totti continues to produce the sparkling form for the Giallorossi it would be impossible for him to ignore him for the national side.
"Should he continue with these sparkling performances it would be unavoidable for me not to call him," Donadoni told Italia 1.
"If he decides not to come well that is his decision."
Donadoni also said Antonio Cassano's absence from the Real Madrid side would make it difficult for him to be considered for the game against Scotland on 28th March.
