Juventus keeper Buffon convinced over quality of Italy squad

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon is convinced about the quality of Italy's World Cup squad.

Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli named his 30-player provisional squad this week.

"In the last four years we built something important that brought many fans back to the Nazionale and increased our sense of belonging," said Buffon.

"Italy are never the favourites going into a major tournament, but history teaches us that as underdogs Italy have always been able to find their role as a protagonist. We always want to amaze and this year is no different.

"Prandelli has created an ideal mix, so I think the call-ups are right and deserved. The Coach looked at the Serie A performances to find the 30 names."
