Gianluigi Buffon's bad luck in major tournaments

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Nobody can argue with the fact that Gianluigi Buffon is one of the best goalkeepers in history. Whenever keepers of that quality are on a field, make sure to visit 1xBet in order to start betting on them.

Probably the most important highlight of Buffon’s international career was winning the 2006 FIFA World Cup with Italy. However, he has missed many matches of major international tournaments due to injury. Some of the competitions that he missed partially or fully were:

the Euro 2000;
the 2010 FIFA World Cup;
and the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Probably the worst of these episodes came during the Euro 2000. At that moment, Buffon was only 22 years old, however, he was already the starting keeper for the Italian side. Obviously, Buffon was selected as part of the Italian squad that was going to take part in that competition. All the Euros and other major football competitions are available at 1xBet for placing wagers.

However, a few days before the beginning of the tournament, the keeper suffered a broken hand. For this reason, Francesco Toldo, who was originally the second goalkeeper in the squad, played during the competition. Also, Christian Abbiati was called to have three keepers in the squad.
The negative streak continues

Six years later Buffon played all the matches in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, which saw his squad becoming champions for the fourth time. When visiting 1xBet mobile, fans will find multiple opportunities to wager on those fantastic football tournaments.

However, the 2010 and 2014 World Cups wasn’t so positive for the Italian. The squad had a disappointing performance in the 2010 competition. In fact, the performance was so bad, that they finished last in their group.

The first match of the Italians during this competition was against Paraguay on the 14th of June. The match ended 1-1 with goals from Daniele de Rossi and AntolĂ­n Alcaraz. Before the end of the first half, Buffon looked like something was not right. He seemed to have pain in his back. To not risk things further, Buffon was replaced by Federico Marchetti during the half-time. Marchetti played the two remaining matches of the Italian team. The mobile 1xBet site features all the matches of the Italian national side.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup was another opportunity for Buffon to redeem himself. He was selected as part of the Italian squad.

However, prior to the first match against England, it was reported that the keeper was suffering physical problems. This was soon proved right when Salvatore Sirigu was chosen as the starting keeper rather than Buffon. However, Buffon recovered to play the two remaining matches.
