Totti & Nesta To Make Italy Return

Lippi seems likely to return as coach of the Azzurri, and replace Roberto Donadoni who will leave following Sunday night’s Euro 2008 quarter final exit against Spain.According to the Corriere dello Sport, Lippi has already persuaded Totti and Nesta to end their international retirements and be part of the 2010 World Cup campaign.

Totti has not played for the Azzurri since the World Cup final win over France two years ago, which was Lippi’s last game in charge before he left to be replaced by Donadoni.Nesta played one Euro 2008 qualifier against Georgia in October 2006 before he also followed Totti in announcing his retirement.

However both players, who enjoy a fantastic relationship with Lippi, are now ready to return for the 2010 World Cup campaign.If confirmed, the news is certain to be greeted by Italy fans, as many feel their was a distinct lack of quality in the Azzurri team at Euro 2008, something these two world champions would certainly bring.
