Buffon delight at Del Piero’s expense

Buffon will be named captain for tonight’s opener with Juventus forward Del Piero to start on the bench. Buffon said that although Cannavaro’s absence is terribly felt amongst the team, he also feels that those who play instead of him will do the job nonetheless good.

 

“I am happy, because my debut with the Nazionale was many years ago and it was just a question of time, considering my age,” he said.

“Clearly it is sad that Fabio is out of action and his absence is terrible for us in a thousand different ways. Above all he is a reference point for everyone, but those who do play are talented and will certainly be ready.”
