Buffon: 'Italy didn't win these'

Gianluigi Buffon celebrated Italy's first ever win in Slovenia. “We rarely used to win this type of match.”

The Azzurri's record on Slovenian soil was of one point from two visits, but Thiago Motta's goal secured victory in the Euro 2012 qualifier.

“We put in a good performance in a difficult arena against a team in excellent shape and above all in a fixture that we always struggled in,” said Buffon of the 1-0 result.

“We rarely used to win this type of match, but deserved it with three or four other scoring opportunities.”
