Totti on track to be back for World Cup

Back in February, it looked unlikely that AS Roma's captain Francesco Totti (pictured) would recover from his broken leg soon enough to help Italy in the World Cup, but it seems that he has responded well to his treatment as he attened his first real training session yesterday.

It was a light session of jogging, stretching and ball-possession exercises with his team-mates, before taking part in a short game. He hopes to be back on the pitch with his team for the first leg of the Coppa Italia final against Inter Milan, on May 3.

That would give him just over a month to get up to full match stregnth ahead of Germany.

The US will play Italy in their second World Cup match on June 17th.
