Totti likely to quit Italy team after final - Lippi
DUISBURG, July 5 (Reuters) Italy coach Marcello Lippi said his playmaker Francesco Totti is '90 percent' likely to quit the national team after Sunday's World Cup final.
''As far as I am aware he has said that it is 90 per cent that he will quit (the Italy team),'' Lippi told a news conference today.
''However, you have to always wait to find out what is going through people's hearts and minds before commenting,'' added Lippi.
Italian media had speculated that 29-year-old Totti would retire from international football after the tournament.
Totti broke his ankle in February and spent three months on the sidelines before the World Cup. He was unable to reach full fitness before the start of the tournament.
However, the AS Roma forward played the full 120 minutes in Tuesday's 2-0 extra-time win over hosts Germany that booked a place in Sunday's final against Portugal or France.
