Perhaps surprisingly, Antonio Cassano has never played a single minute of World Cup football, with his inclusion in Italys 2014 squad being the Parma strikers first ever call-up to an Azzurri World Cup squad.
Now aged 31, Cassano has admitted that he thought his chance to appear at a World Cup had passed, but thanks to a serious show of dedication he was able to persuade coach Cesare Prandelli that he was worth taking to Brazil largely due to him scoring 12 goals and dropping 10kg over the course of the 2013/14 season.
As a reward for his efforts, Cassano duly made the final cut of the Italy squad over the weekend as a bit of a wild card at the expense of Giuseppe Rossi.
I would be the happiest man in the world if [I played in Brazil], Cassano admitted to the Guardian before revealing the secret to his success.
Im on a diet. Ive stopped eating focaccia, except for once a week.
Good on him.
If I lived in Italy I would weigh 300lbs.
Good thing he didn’t go on Michelle Obama’s “Diet for the little people” — he would have taken his own life by now.
Big Gov’s food pyramid is so ridiculous, just like everything else they promote.
The pyramid was probably based on who paid politicians more
