Buffon: 'I thought Napoli would win'

Gigi Buffon admits “at one point I really believed Napoli would win the Scudetto, because they had the psychological advantage” over Juventus.

The 40-year-old has left Juve, but is ready for a new chapter of his career and expected to have a medical with PSG next week.

“I gave what I could, in terms of talent and of nervous energy. Now I leave space to the younger players who must get accustomed to taking on even small amounts of responsibility so they can get bigger and bigger,” Buffon told Sky Sport Italia.

Meret worth the Napoli gamble

Napoli are taking a huge risk with €25m plus bonuses on 21-year-old goalkeeper Alex Meret, but Daryl Hammond hopes it'll pay off.

If the 2018 World Cup has taught us anything, it is that age is just a number. After all, 45-year-old Egyptian ‘keeper Essam El Hadary saved a penalty on the same day he came the eldest player to ever feature in the competition. 

Meanwhile, 19-year-old France forward Kylian Mbappé continuously affirms his status as one of football’s brightest prospects with a stellar showing against Argentina.

Juve need the Champions League

By the time the next Final rolls along, it'll be 23 years since Juventus won the Champions League. That is simply too long for Adam Digby.

Remember that glorious night in Rome? A high, bouncing ball that Fabrizio Ravanelli controlled before slotting into the back of the net from a tight angle? The silver haired striker certainly enjoyed the goal, wheeling away with his shirt over his head in trademark fashion. Remember the penalty shoot-out? Four flawless spot kicks from Ciro Ferrara, Gianluca Pessotto, Michele Padovano and Vladimir Jugovic? What about those two incredible saves from the ultra-reliable Angelo Peruzzi?

WC Player Profile: Wojciech Szczesny

The goalkeeper pushed his way to the starting XI at Juventus and Poland after going from strength to strength, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

Wojciech Szczesny had fallen down the pecking order at Arsenal, but two years on loan at Roma allowed him to rediscover his confidence.

A surprise transfer to Juve followed and he has now replaced Gianluigi Buffon in the first choice gloves - at least for now, as Mattia Perin is eager to take the same path.

Italy fans mustn't be delusional

It’s tempting to believe Italy could’ve made a big splash on a low-quality World Cup, but Giancarlo Rinaldi won’t get lulled into that trap.

It is one of the great duplicities that football fans love to indulge in. Even when our team has long been knocked out of a competition we tell ourselves that the fates could have been so much different.

I have known people - myself included - who have plotted the course to imaginary semi-finals and finals even when our favourites departed the scene many rounds before. But any Italian fans seriously entertaining such fantasies this summer would be well advised to take a dip in some icy Dolomite stream to wake them from such reverie.
