sbobet asian Gianluigi Buffon hit back at critics after arriving in England by saying he has not returned to the Italy squad "to show myself off".

The veteran goalkeeper announced his retirement from international football after Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup last November but later performed a U-turn.

He has been retained as captain by caretaker coach Luigi di Biagio and is set to lead the side out in friendlies against Argentina in Manchester on Friday and England at Wembley next Tuesday.

The decision has been questioned in some quarters but the 40-year-old Juventus legend insists he is still the best man for the job.

Buffon, who holds a European record 175 international caps, said: "I've nothing to add to what has been said. Everyone knows the truth.

"My role in the squad has always been positive and I've always brought people together. I've always put us before me. sbobet asian

"I'm not here to showcase, to show myself off. I can still be useful. I might be 40 but I'm the goalkeeper of Juventus.

"Italy is a funny country where people enjoy controversy but any controversy about me is just sensationalism. After a while all this controversy will just fall away."

Buffon has previously hinted that this season could be his last but he does not appear to have any retirement plans yet.

Speaking at a press conference at the Etihad Stadium, Buffon added: "I don't know if my last match will be with Juventus or an international but it will be low key and sober, normal.

"I arrived at my first game on a scooter and the only car I have is the one that Juventus make available for me."

Di Biagio, who has stepped up from duties with the U21 side, hopes the four friendlies in the remainder of the season can help Italy move on from their World Cup nightmare. Russia 2018 will be the first finals to take place without four-time world champions Italy for 60 years.

The games also provide a chance for Di Biagio to stake a claim for the job full-time but he insists that is not his focus.

Di Biagio said: "Everything around the team has changed. We need a new start.

"We have a small world championship in these four matches. It is a chance to test new players. We need patience and consistency, regardless of who is going to be in the driving seat." sbobet asian

Kevin De Bruyne and Belgium show England what they lack

 
www sbobet England were the World Cup's set-piece kings but their third-place play-off defeat to Belgium was a reminder of what they lack .England will leave Russia with their heads held high after a World Cup campaign which captivated the country and reignited enthusiasm for the national team, but when Gareth Southgate sits down to assess where his side can improve, there is one area which will jump out at him.

England's creativity issues were obscured for much of the tournament. Southgate's side were not scoring from open play but what did it matter when they were so potent from set pieces? It was only when the opposition became tougher that it became problematic. In Saturday's third-place play-off, the contrast with Belgium was stark.

www sbobet Roberto Martinez's side picked England apart repeatedly in Saint Petersburg, with Kevin De Bruyne the orchestrator. He notched an assist when he released Eden Hazard for Belgium's second goal, but he could easily have had more if not for Romelu Lukaku's wastefulness.

Twice De Bruyne split England's defence with eye-of-the-needle passes to put Lukaku through on goal, and twice the Manchester United striker failed to get the ball under control. It was frustrating for Belgium, but whether it was finding the final pass or constructing counter-attacks from deep, De Bruyne's vision and execution were close to perfect.

England did have moments of their own from open play, with Marcus Rashford and Eric Dier combining to put the latter through on goal at one point and Ruben Loftus-Cheek showing flashes of inspiration at others, but they leave Russia having managed just 10 shots www sbobet on target from open play across seven games.
