    The article is from August last year, tbf.

    They're both about 80 too, aren't they? I know the Italians have a reverence for the veteran (both Zoff and Maladini were playing for the national side into their fifth decades), but don't see this as a serious proposition.

    ADP would be a great pick to travel with the squad in some sort of legend/mentor role but there must be something seriously wrong with Italians goal scorers if he'd currently be good enough to make their squad.

    Yes imo. This summer it will ten years since he spat at Christian Poulsen. The time is ripe for redemption.

    Totti is still amazing but I don't think he's a good fit for the way Italy play at the moment.

    Totti and Pirlo in the same side would be asking a lot of your midfield De Rossi and Marchisio do have incredible engines tbf but then all of a sudden you have no width.

    I had a Del Piero Juventus shirt when I was trying to play at one time which must have been about 15-16 years ago. When I first saw this thread I thought it might be about his son.

    Ftr they should definitely play them, as well as anyone else who was on Premier League Manager 1999 that's still knocking about
