Juventus keeper Buffon: More to Italy than Balotelli

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon insists there's more to Italy's World Cup hopes than AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli will miss the friendly against Spain due to injury.

"Mario Balotelli? We have great affection for him and he always makes us laugh in the locker room, but this Nazionale must not be dependent on anyone, including Andrea Pirlo or me," said Buffon.
