Notts County star Hughes aims to gatecrash Juventus party tonight

Notts County striker Lee Hughes aims to score against Juventus tonight.

The Italian giants invited League One Notts County to mark their new ground's opening in a special friendly match.

Hughes already has his sights set on beating World Cup-winning goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon at the new 41,000-seat Juventus Arena.

The ex-West Bromwich Albion forward said: "It's going to be a massive game for everyone.

"It'll be one of the highlights of my career to play against Juventus in Turin.

"It's something I will be able to tell my grandkids about one day long after I've retired.

"And it would be unbelievable to stick one past Buffon and score the first goal there."
