Gianluigi Buffon eyes record

Gianluigi Buffon is hoping to notch a "special achievement" in his career by joining Fabio Cannavaro as Italy's most-capped player.

Buffon, 35, is expected to feature in the Azzurri's clash with Bulgaria on Friday, and an appearance against the Czech Republic next Tuesday would see him equal the all-time record.

He said: "It would represent a special achievement, but not necessarily something unthinkable seeing as I started playing for the national team very early.

"It's a wonderful feeling, because I've had 16 incredible years, even though I suffered an injury that could have changed a lot of things. I believe that I've done well over the years and always been determined to keep pushing myself.

"Of all the Italy matches I've played, I can tell you that the last hundred have not just been games of football but much more than that: they have been played with passion, spirit, emotion, the sense of responsibility that comes from representing your country and the desire to make our fans happy."
