(ANSA) - Florence, October 8 - Cesare Prandelli said Monday
that he has left Antonio Cassano out of his squad for Italy's
upcoming qualifiers against Armenia and Denmark because he wants
to focus on younger players.
Nevertheless, the Azzurri coach, who has not used Cassano
since he helped Italy reach the final of Euro 2012, stressed
that the 30-year-old Inter Milan striker's international career
had not ended.
"His time with the national team is not over," Prandelli
said.
"But at the moment I prefer to continue on the road of
renewal with younger players. It's the same thing with (Udinese
forward Antonio) Di Natale, who then played (for Italy) at more
important moments".
Italy visit Armenia on Friday and take on Denmark in Milan
four days later.
They lead European qualification Group B after beating
Malta 2-0 in Modena and drawing 2-2 with Bulgaria in Sofia last
month.
