Amauri appears to have chosen Italy


TURIN, Italy (AP) -Juventus striker Amauri appears to have chosen Italy over Brazil.

"I've pretty much made up my mind and you will know my future soon,'' the Brazilian-born player said in an interview Monday with the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Amauri is in the process of obtaining Italian citizenship. He was called up by Brazil coach Dunga for a friendly with Italy last month but was blocked from playing by Juventus, which said the call came too late.

"If I play for the Italian national team it won't be because of calculations or for my career, but because I have a special feeling,'' Amauri said. "I've been in Italy for 10 years. This country has given me everything and putting on the Azzurri jersey would be a way to give something back in return.''

Italy coach Marcello Lippi has been cautious regarding Amauri.

"There's no doubt he's a great player, but today he's still a Brazilian player and I only speak about Italian players,'' Lippi said Sunday on Italian TV.
