Giuseppe Rossi has claimed that he wants to get back into Cesare Prandelli's Italy squad next season.
The Fiorentina forward missed almost the entirety of last term due to knee surgery, but the 26-year-old has admitted that he hopes to be in the Azzurri squad for the World Cup, as well as commenting on Massimo Ambrosini's proposed move to the Viola.
“I really want to start over next season,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I hope to regain a place in the national team and to participate in the World Cup.
“It would be great if Max joined us – he is a true champion.”
