Palermo’s Brazilian striker Carvalho de Oliveira Amaun may play for his adopted country as early as EURO 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. The 27-year-old has applied for an Italian passport and would be an immediate candidate for the World Cup holders’ squad were he to be granted citizenship, Italy boss Roberto Donadoni has been quoted as saying. Amauri has been playing in Italy since 2001, having begun his European career with Swiss outfit Bellinzona.
