Amauri Chooses Italy

Another Argentinian to play for Italy..

Juventus' Brazilian-born striker Amauri has chosen to play for Italy over the Selecao, according to Tuttosport...

The former Palermo hit-man is still waiting for his Italian passport to drop through the letter box and, when it does, the chances of him wearing the famous Azzurri shirt will have increased ten fold.

Tuttosport claims the recent snub on the Brazilian by 'Samba Boys' coach Carlos Dunga has not gone down too well with him, leading to increased speculation he is leaning towards the Nazionale.

Italy coach Macello Lippi has always hinted he may call up Amauri in future and thus a place for South Africa 2010 may even be reserved for him should he impress enough with the Old Lady.

Juventus will be delighted if reports regarding Amauri's choice are true. Playing for Italy would mean no long haul trips across the Atlantic Ocean every time he gets a call up; it would benefit the striker and club in the sense that he would not suffer from fatigue or jetlag and he will always be back on time after international duty.

As well as this, once his passport comes through, he will free up an extra non-EU place at the club, which would mean the Bianconeri could sign a player like Diego without affecting their quota for foreign players from outside the European Union.

To be honest, he has good potential and he wants to play at international level and at the moment he cant. But play for another country? where is the passion and love for your country? he could just wait for his turn but footballers are like bitches a lot of the time in todays game..

So thats 2 Argentinians in the Italian national team now.. whats the point of having a world cup anymore?

first amauri is brazilian, so get ur facts straight.

The fact he has "chosen" italy is only due to dunga being an idiot and failing to see him.

Amauri is world class, but that doesnt mean lippi will giove him the call.

If brazil call comes in first i think he will choose brazil.

Hargraeves should be playing for Canada then, since England had absolutely nothing to do with his development. In fact, he's more of a Canadian/German product since Bayern basically developed him after he left Canada. His first real English experience outside of the NT was when Manchester finally acquired him. And to think, a Canadian was England's best player in 02.

Cmon Gunner, if you are going to throw rocks, make sure you don't live in a glass house mate

Hargreaves actually had english blood though. i mean look at him, he looks as english as it gets.
