Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon admits Italy's Euro qualifier with Croatia is massive.
Buffon admits the tie "lights up interest".
"Tomorrow will not be a game like the others, because these groups are put together between prestigious teams and so-called minnows," said the goalkeeper.
"This will be one of those matches that lights up interest. There will be international level players and we are curious to measure ourselves up against Croatia.
"We are both humble and ambitious at the same time, because we are Italy and our football history speaks for us.
"We really want to impress tomorrow and convince the fans that this team is still alive and kicking.
"It is going to be a difficult and important game, corresponding to the respect we have for our opponents."
