Francesco Totti



Francesco Totti
Francesco Totti may have timed his run into the Italian team at just the right time.

His outstanding displays for Roma have demanded attention but, since debuting in a qualifier against Switzerland in 1998, he hasn't managed to hold down a regular place in the national side as his preferred position just behind a front two doesn't fit with Zoff's rigid 4-4-2 formation.

However Zoff tinkered with his system in Italy's final warm-up games for Euro 2000 and Totti was the outstanding player in the Azzurri's 2-0 win over Portugal.

He faces stiff competition from Alessandro del Piero but Totti is certainly in form and his vision and passing are exceptional.
