The 38-year-old goalkeeper has vowed to be a part of the Azzurri's plans for the 2018 World Cup - but his chances of winning the European Championship have ended

Gianluigi Buffon was reduced to tears following Italy’s exit from Euro 2016 at the hands of Germany in the quarter-finals.

Antonio Conte’s side were dumped out of the competition after a crazy penalty shootout, with Germany’s Jonas Hector scoring the winner past Buffon.

The tournament will not be Buffon’s last with Italy as the 38-year-old has insisted that he is keen to play some part at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
