Balzaretti with World Cup regret

Federico Balzaretti spoke to the media while at a hospital initiative in Rome:

“It’s been a fantastic season, we ended in an impressive position and then we set a record. Code of ethics? I won’t comment on this, I’ll leave the responsibility to Prandelli, he decides on this since he’s at the top. I hope my friends who’ve gone to the World Cup are satisfied, because now it’s a final test. I’m sorry not to be there and not being able to fight for a place.”
