The Manchester City striker is expected to start against Spain in the Euros.
â€śMario is one of those pure talents who can let you win a match,â€ť said Buffon.
â€śHe has always behaved diligently with us. Heâ€™s 22 years old, so itâ€™s only right that in order to grow he must be allowed to make mistakes.
â€śThe important thing is that he learns from that experience of getting it wrong.
â€śI think itâ€™s wonderful to be able to look back and realise Iâ€™ve been wearing the Italy shirt since 1997. The situation our football is going through right now certainly doesnâ€™t help us to focus, but for players with the experience many of us have, it can also be a good motivational tool.â€ť
