About   Edit

Gianluigi Buffon was born on 28th January 1978 in Carrara, Italy. He is a professional Footballer from Italy. He plays as a Goal and has served Italian National Football team as a Captain. He is best remembered for leading Italy to the 2006 FIFA World Cup Championship.

Career

He started playing football as a mid-fielder but he transformed to goalkeeper at age 11. He started playing professional football by joining the youth system of Parma F.C. at 13. The tall and lanky goalkeeper made a strong start and left an impression in his debut for the senior Italy national football team during a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in 1997. However, he was not selected for 1998, FIFA World Cup. 
 
After his impressive performance, Buffon was transferred to Juventus F.C. in  2001 for a hefty amount of $45 million, which is still a record fee for a goalkeeper. He proved his heavy price tag by leading Juventus to four straight league titles and a pair of Italian Supercups. While in National colours, Buffon led a young but dedicated squad to the 2006 FIFA World Cup championship. He conceded just two goals in the whole tournament and led by example. 
 
In 2016, Buffon created history by becoming the first goalkeeper ever to be crowned with the Golden Foot Award.
