Totti Considers Italy Comeback

AS Roma forward Francesco Totti says he would consider returning to Italy's national team for the World Cup.

Hobbled by injuries in recent years, the 33-year-old Totti retired from international play after Italy won the 2006 World Cup. But he told yesterday's Gazzetta dello Sport: "It depends on coach (Marcello Lippi's) choices and my condition. I owe (Lippi) a lot."

Struggling in attack lately, Italy is in desperate need of a player with Totti's all-around skills.

The AS Roma captain has scored nine goals in 53 appearances for Italy. He has six goals through Roma's first seven games in Serie A.
