Italy coach Roberto Donadoni admits he will have to respect Alessandro Nesta´s decision to retire from the national team.

The AC Milan man followed Francesco Totti´s example to end his international career in order to focus on club affairs at the San Siro. And despite the loss of the experienced defender, Donadoni has accepted his decision as he prepares for Italy´s crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against France.

He said: "Nesta´s decision has got to be respected by everybody. We will see what the future holds but I know that I won´t have him available."
