Juventus keeper Buffon reveals secrets to longevity

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon celebrated an international landmark with Italy's victory over the Czech Republic last night.

The win sends Italy to the World Cup and makes Buffon the joint all-time top Italy player with 136 caps.

"There were times in my life when I wanted to have fun and I did, particularly as my body allowed me to. After reaching a certain age you realise that in order to last you have to become a man and behave in a certain way."
