MILAN (AP) Italy's midfield maestro Andrea Pirlo says he may go back on his decision to retire from international football.
However, on the airplane back to Italy following a disappointing group-stage exit, Pirlo says ''if the new national coach thinks he needs me, I will happily remain available.''
Pirlo has scored 13 goals in 112 appearances for Italy, since making his debut in 2002 and helped Italy to its World Cup victory in 2006.
Coach Cesare Prandelli resigned immediately after the Uruguay defeat.
