Buffon Predicts Italian Win Over France

Buffon has rallied his team-mates to knock France out of the Euros and try and raise their hopes of qualifying. With Holland’s first place already summed up, Holland can rest some of their players against Romania who will qualify ahead of Italy and France if they beat Holland.

 “We have to go out there and play the match of our lives,” said Buffon who had he not saved the Mutu’s penalty, Italy would be already out of the Euros.

“If we get to the quarters it will mean we will have come up with a little extra.”

“It’s normal to feel the pressure and I am dying to get out there and play. A double-or-quits match is what our work is all about.”

“We just have to focus on France. We cannot start doing maths.”

“I didn’t understand everything,” admitted Buffon, “but from what they tell me we have a slightly better chance than France.

“I think we are in better shape. We reacted from the opening 3-0 loss to Holland in our game against Romania, and we will have to wait and see if France have recovered from their hammer-blow result against Holland.”
