Rossi could still make it to the World Cup in Brazil
Giuseppe Rossi has been out with an knee injury since January, but the Italy national team coach Cesare Prandelli is hopeful that he will be on the plane to Brazil for the World Cup which starts in June.
He didn’t want to comment any more though, and said that Rossi needs time to recover in peace.
Prandelli was speaking after a gathering for the 42 World Cup hopefuls this week. The meeting was to assess the fitness at this stage and make sure everyone knows his rules. Prandelli has warned that any misbehaviour will result in being dropped from the team.
