Italy coach Roberto Donadoni has refused to close the door on Alessandro Del Piero´s international career despite leaving him out of the squad for Wednesday´s international friendly against Portugal in Zurich.

The Juventus veteran was overlooked as Donadoni instead selected 25-year-old Marco Borriello, Serie A´s leading scorer this season with 12 goals in 18 games for Genoa, for a game which is being used by both sides as preparation for Euro 2008 this summer.

"There are still four months left before Euro 2008 and no-one should feel excluded," he said.
