Message Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon responds to criticism of r Répondre en citant

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

Jonjo Shelvey should beat Jack Wilshere to World Cup spot, says Steve McMahon
 
pic5678 Jonjo Shelvey should go to the World Cup over Arsenal's Jack Wilshere, Steve McMahon told The Debate. Shelvey has not been selected for an England squad in nearly three years, when Roy Hodgson was still manager, but has been tipped for a recall for the World Cup on the back of his fine form for Newcastle this season. McMahon, and fellow The Debate guest Dennis Wise disagreed on who should be on England's plane to Russia - with the former Liverpool man in no doubt about who should be included among Southgate's midfielders.

"I don't see any room in my squad for a Jack Wilshere," he said. "Jonjo Shelvey has more of a range. Wilshere doesn't do enough for me. You talk about Shelvey's character, but look at Wilshere's injury problems. You couldn't afford to take Adam Lallana and Wilshere. "He likes him as a footballer, and you don't play that number of games for Arsenal unless you're a good footballer, but that's what he is - he's a good footballer.

"You've got to have lots of other strings to your bow. We're talking about winning a World Cup, not signing a new deal at Arsenal for however many years. Six or seven weeks, can you open a game up, can you see a pass and I think Shelvey can see more than Wilshere does." Wise took issue with the "myth" surrounding Wilshere's injuries and said he would be among his 23-man squad for Russia. pic5678

He added: "I think his injuries are gone - you look at the last 18 months, it's a bit of a myth. The amount of games he's played over that period, he's played well over 30 games for Arsenal this season. "The fact that he's actually proved a point, and we can all harp on about his injuries, but he's proved enough to show that he's fit enough to play. He's shown that, and Gareth bought him back into the fold because he's proved that point." pic5678

Luis Suarez says Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry is just in La Liga

 
www sbobet Luis Suarez believes any rivalry he may have with Cristiano Ronaldo is limited just to playing against each other for Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga.Ronaldo's Portugal take on Suarez and Uruguay in the World Cup last 16 on Saturday and the Barcelona forward insists it is not a personal battle with the Real Madrid forward.

"When it comes to the rivalry with Ronaldo at club level that's a different thing altogether," Suarez said on Friday."This is a World Cup and of course we're all defending and we're all working for our national teams, and that's the essential aspect. And everybody will try and give their utmost tomorrow as to prevail."

Ronaldo scored four goals in Portugal's first two group stage matches while Uruguay are the only team that did not concede in the first round in a group containing Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez was complimentary of Ronaldo and the rest of the Portugal squad, noting several times Uruguay will be facing the reigning champions of Europe.

But he also admitted it'll be a group effort trying to slow down Portugal's star."Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best strikers in the world," www sbobet Tabarez said."He has a great potential obviously and in planning the match, especially focusing on the opponent and considering the level that every player has ... what Ronaldo has on top of the qualities is that he's the leader of that team.

"That is an additional factor. There is not a single player that can contain him there. "Not just (Diego) Godin. We will have to work collectively in order to try and contain him or in order to try and limit the effect he can have."

One player who could significantly help Uruguay in trying to contain Ronaldo is defender Jose Maria Gimenez, who missed the group stage finale with a thigh injury.Gimenez returned to training this week for Uruguay, but Tabarez wouldn't respond to questions about his selection in the team."I don't make comments on individual players at all," Tabarez said. www sbobet
