thumbnail Hello,

'Bobo' still harbours hope of a third World Cup appearance, after already featuring in 1998 and 2002...

It seems that Christian Vieri, after leaving Atalanta earlier this month, is set to complete a move to Brazil, according to his representative, Franck Assuncao.

"There are great possibilities that Vieri will play here [in Brazil], even if there is no certainty as to the club," the agent told Solo Calcio.

"There are at least four clubs who want him and that also includes Corinthians with Ronaldo, but right now they are engaged in the final of the Paulista with Santos."

Assuncao also revealed that the veteran striker still has Azzurri aspirations and a desire to play in the 2010 World Cup.

"He is here because he wants to come back to the [Italian] national team for the next World Cup. He is waiting with open arms."

The 35-year-old last played for La Nazionale in Marcello Lippi's first stint as coach, but picked up an injury prior to the 2006 World Cup ruling him out of the tournament. He has 49 caps and 23 goals for Italy, but many would suggest it is an extreme long shot that he would ever play at the international level again.
