Gianluigi Buffon spoke of the possibility of not making the World Cup and potentially playing his final two matches for Italy.
“Feeling certain vibrations can be positive and I hope we can prove ourselves on the field,” Gigi said to Rai Sport.
“There is a very fine line dividing anxiety and excitement, so that’s the only way to experience these moments and await the verdict.
“History would say we are the favourites in this play-off, but the truth is we have a 50 per cent chance of reaching the World Cup.”
There is a possibility that Italy do not make the World Cup and Buffon is forced to play his final two games in the famous Italy shirt.
“Could these be my last two games in an Italy jersey? In these periods you consider everything, including this possibility.”
