During the award celebration of the Gran Gala del calcio, as leader as he is, Juventus’ midfielder Andrea Pirlo has opened reopened the doors of the Nazionale to Roma’s captain Francesco Totti.
In the night that he has been awarded not only as the league’s best midfielder, but also as Serie A’s absolute best player of 2013, the 34-year-old took the opportunity to sponsor his fellow former teammate, who hasn’t been part of the Azzurri since 2006.
“Great champions are always welcome in the national team,” he said during the gala. “For sure, I would advice Prandelli to call Totti up for the World Cup.”
Wearing together the Azzurro, Pirlo and Totti had the honor of winning the 2006 World Cup in Germany, in which they were both immovable pieces in Marcello Lippi’s starting formation.
