Totti: Cassano and I should be in Brazil


Roma captain Francesco Totti believes both he and Antonio Cassano should be boarding the plane to Brazil in June, while he is keen to see Didier Drogba sign for the capital club in the future.

Totti, 37, marked his return after a month out injured with a goal in the Giallorossi’s 3-2 Serie A win over Udinese on Monday night.His sixth goal of the campaign has led to calls for him to be included by Italy coach Cesare Prandelli in his squad for the World Cup.

Cassano also caught the eye at the weekend with two goals in Parma’s 4-2 win at AC Milan.And while he says he continues to keep his fingers crossed Prandelli will call him up, Totti sees no reason why both he and Cassano, 31, cannot earn a call-up for Brazil.

“Why not? If I’m fit, I’d take myself,” Totti told La Romanista fanzine. “[Cassano’s] half crazy, but he’s a laugh and if he carries on playing the way he’s playing now, it’s only right that he goes.”Totti is also hoping to be able to show his quality once again in the Champions League next season.
