Di Natale makes it 67 in 84

Antonio Di Natale has sent a reminder of his ability to Italy boss Cesare Prandelli after rippling the net yet again.

The veteran’s strike against Chievo was his 67th in his last 84 Serie A games for his beloved Stadio Friuli outfit.

“It’s up to Prandelli to make a decision about Di Natale,” the forward’s agent Bruno Carpeggiani told TMW.

“Antonio is serene and tranquil about everything. For now he is just thinking about doing well for Udinese.

“If the national boss does decide to select him then Di Natale would be delighted to be a part of the Azzurri squad.”

The 34-year-old hasn’t played for Italy, or been called up to the Giro Azzurro, since the 2010 World Cup Finals.

Prandelli has opted to select younger strikers in favour of Di Natale, a man who has scored 10 goals in 36 games for his country.
