Totti and Nesta to the Rescue?

According to a report from the Corriere dello Sport, currently internationally retired Italians Francesco Totti, and Alessandro Nesta will rejoin the Italian national team for the 2010 World Cup.

This move is most likely based on the impending return of former Italy coach Marcello Lippi.

Totti has not played for Italy since the last World Cup, while Nesta played in 1 Euro 08 qualifying game against Georgia in October of 2006.

Totti has 9 international goals in 58 appearances, while Nesta has made 78 appearances for Italy.

If this is true, it would be great news for Italian fans.

I want to hear from Totti why he would return to the "Nazionale" now. He was needed -the same- before this euro 2008.

It's about time !!! Totti should have been apart of Euro 2008 qualifying and the tournament from the get go. If he wanted some time off to recover from an emotionally draining victory, I understand.

However, a man who lead Serie A in scoring in 2007 and had another great tally in 2008 needs to be playing for his national side. Who knows....maybe he didn't want to play for anyone but Marcello Lippi. Its great to see that the 2006 Champions are coming back for an more !!!
