Cesare Prandelli’s Italy side could play Germany in an international friendly during the month of November.
Should the Germans qualify for the World Cup without the need of a play-off, they are being tipped to face the Azzurri and possibly England at the end of this year.
The proposed Azzurri fixture would take place in Italy on November 15. Milan, Florence or Genoa are being tipped as possible venues.
Italy booked their place at Brazil 2014 last night with a 2-1 win over the Czech Republic at the Juventus Stadium.
