Di Natale puts Udinese first

Antonio Di Natale says he’ll only think about a possible World Cup call once his Udinese side have avoided relegation.

Remaining in Serie A is always the Stadio Friuli outfit’s first objective and it is no different this term despite their recent success in the top-flight.

“The national side? For now we are thinking about getting to the 40 point mark with Udinese,” the 36-year-old noted.

“Then we’ll look at the situation. If boss Cesare Prandelli has the need for me then I will be at his disposal.”

After almost two years out of the national set-up, Di Natale was recalled by Prandelli for the 2012 European Championships.

The scorer of 11 goals in 42 caps hasn’t played for the Azzurri since they lost 4-0 to Spain in the Final of that tournament.
