Gianluigi Buffon expressed his indignation to the press at the fact that the Squadra Azzurra is being underestimated by public opinion. The Italian legend doesn’t understand why his country isn’t listed as one of the favorites for Euro 2024 by some observers. According to the head of the national team delegation, Italy has the potential to put on a good show.

“In my opinion, it’s a national team that is probably underestimated, but it’s a very competitive team above all because of the human depth of the guys who make it up. That’s what surprised and pleased me the most, the feeling of belonging to this jersey. And then there’s their attitude: with humility and a spirit of service, they listen to all the directives given to them by the coach and the Federation. That said, there are 4-5-6 elements who are the best in the world. In addition to the group, we also have the right individuals to compete well,” said Buffon.
