De­par­ture of stal­warts

The New Indian Express - - SPORT -

A tear­ful Gian­luigi Buf­fon quit in­ter­na­tional foot­ball as well as the likes of An­drea Barza­gli and Daniele De Rossi. Their de­par­ture marks the end of the mag­ni­fi­cient Ital­ian old guard that brought the Az­zurri at World Cup in 2006.

“I just said we were near the end and had to win, so send the strik­ers to warm up. I pointed to Insigne too. I just thought per­haps it was bet­ter that Insigne come on in­stead.” Daniele de Rossi
