The big thing with Totti is fitness, he has barely played three games straight for the past four years. Would it be fair to bring him back for the world Cup having not contributed in qualifying and previously saying his retirement decision was final?I feel a blog coming on, maybe next week if he scores again and doesn’t get injured. Then Lippi will start pondering…

Surely he deserves a World Cup appearance, even a make-believe one…
