    If Baggio were still good enough, the Italian fans would be clamouring for him, but he is too old for it now and not as good as other options.

    He may have looked good in what was in effect a Testimonial game, but that means nothing about a competitive International Tournament!

    Actually some Italian fans (and they know quite a bit about the Italian game) seem to consider him to be good enough.

    He seems to be good enough from what I have seen.

    Woud you rather pick del Piero who hasnt been in good form this season?

    Form is temporary, class is permanent - and by the way Baggio scored less goals than Del Piero this season.

    By that token, why aren't other retired players playing for their countries?!

    Because they came to the end of their careers or got to old and decided to give it away?

    Yet you still call for Baggio.

    Then again, Del Piero has never played for Inter has he ?...

    IIRC he hasnt.

    It's got nothing to do with them playing for Inter or not, whether they are good enough.

    I consider Antonio Cassano to be one of the best young strikers in the world, and yet he has never played for Inter...

    Cassano is more of a number 10 than a striker and must have improved a lot from when I saw him playing regularly.

    He has, he was brilliant when Roma thumped Inter 4-1. It was to be epected though after Inter got done by Brescia and Udinese.
