Likely to be named by Roberto Mancini, for Italian NT training camp, for the first time, 30-year old Brazilian-Italian centre-back Rafael Tolói told sports magazine Undici: "Meet that kind of call would be an honour for me. I wouldn't hesitate even a minute. I've been living in Italy six years long by now, my great grandparents were from Italy. I'm an azzurro at heart". Playing for Atalanta since 2015/16, former AS Roma and São Paulo is currently captaining the team, Tolói is one of La Dea boss Gian Piero Gasperini's "loyalists".
