The team captain Gianluigi Buffon also announced his retirement from the national team. He said:“This is indeed a failure of Italian football. However, I am still looking forward to the future of Italian football. We have ability and determination to stage a comeback after such a failure. I will leave the position for those young geniuses such as Donnaluma and Mattia Perin.”

Gianluigi Buffon is widely regarded as the greatest goalkeeper. As a professional footballer, he got a lot of individual awards. In 2017, Buffon won the Best FIFA Goalkeeper Award. Besides, he has been named the Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year eleven times.

On football patches, Buffon is a talented and aggressive goalkeeper with speed, prowess and anticipation, as well as confidence, goalkeeping technique and reactions. He often functioned as a sweeper-keeper, frequently rushing out of his area to clear the ball or face opponents who had beaten the offside trap.

The home kit includes traditionally blue shirt, white shorts and blue socks. Accordingly, Italy national team gets its nickname the Azzurri(blue).
