Confederations Cup Podcast: Time for Buffon to Retire?

Italy LogoThe Italian Football FanCast is the for fans of Calcio and the Italian National Team.

Joining host Stefano Merco on today’s show is Adriano Boin and Enzo Misuraca and Peter Galindo, as well as, Editor of Forza Italian Football, Dov Schiavone.

The Azzurri took on in their final match of the group stage and it didn’t turn out as many would have wanted.

In one of the worst defensive display’s from the national team in a long while, we look at why has become leakier than an old tin roof.

There has also been a clamour for Gianluigi Buffon to retire from international football after his atrocious display against the Selecao. We look at whether or not he should stay?

Finally, we preview the semi-final match against Spain. The Azzurri are looking for revenge following their 4-0 drubbing in Euro 2012, but can they do it without Mario Balotelli?

    It seems that Buffon is realy not in his best shape and against team like Spain is not the best time to wait and see if he can manage to change it under the pressure . But there was stoppers as well who did make a big mistakes especialy main stopper Chiellini as well not only in last match but against Japan or against Spain in European final as well.Its hard to remember when was Italy getting that much goals .Lets see what Prandeli will change it in this case

    i feel that if insigne sits behind the strikers he can be that link between midfield and the forwards
