Buffon and Barzagli still Italy doubts

RECIFE, Brazil -- Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and centre-back Andrea Barzagli remain doubts for Friday's World Cup clash against Costa Rica.

Buffon twisted his left ankle and knee before the Azzurri's opening game against England and watched from the bench as Salvatore Sirigu filled in for him in the 2-1 win.

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli said of Buffon: ''[He] has had three great days of training but the ankle is still slightly swollen. If he feels good after today's training he'll play.''

Barzagli missed training on Wednesday due to a tendinitis problem that had bothered him all season with Juventus.

Prandelli said: ''Barzagli is better but we'll evaluate him tomorrow morning.''

If Barzagli cannot play, Leonardo Bonucci could take over in defence alongside Giorgio Chiellini.
