Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary has sent a heartfelt message to Italy legend Gianluigi Buffon who announced his retirement from international football on Monday.
Buffon called time on his international career after the Azurri missed out of the World Cup for the first time in 60years with a 0-0 draw against Sweden to complete a 1-0 aggregate play-off defeat.
And El-Hadary who returns to the World Cup with Egypt after 28 years offered support to the Juventus skipper and vowed to make up for his absence.
لا اجد الكلمات المناسبة .. عزائي الوحيد انني سأتواجد و احاول أن اعوض غيابك 💔
كل حراس المونديال سيلعبون من أجلك يا أسطورة#بوفون pic.twitter.com/eOwiwRg1XT — Essam El-Hadary (@ElHadary) November 13, 2017
