Buffon and Donnarumma - Italy National Team

Donnarumma is currently Buffon's coat on the team, where Juventus players collect his 171 caps when the team wins over Israel.

Albertini felt that Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma was ready to play Buffon's role, but he asked him to be patient.

However, he asked Gigio to be able to match the achievements Buffon so he got a chance later.

"Donnarumma is definitely ready to replace Buffon," Albertini said at Omnisport.

"Buffon, meanwhile, is still not ready to leave football, too early, we have two top goalkeepers, one of whom has a lot of experience - one of the greatest goalkeepers in history, and while Buffon has the motivation to play it is okay for us to keep it . "

"And the future of the national team will be bright with Donnarumma, I'm sure he is a great goalkeeper and a great talent."

"He has to work hard to be able to record history and be worthy of Buffon."

While Agent Mino Raiola revealed that Italy coach Giampiero Ventura lacked enough character to get rid of Gianluigi Buffon and play Gianluigi Donnarumma in the Azzurri.

Buffon will almost certainly retire after the 2018 World Cup, with AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma touted as the favorite candidate for heir of Buffon's position in the national team.

However, some claim that the appointment of Donnarumma as Italy's main goalkeeper should be faster, especially after they were beaten by Spain some time ago. But Raiola says that Ventura will not do that.

"As an agent of Donnarumma, I would certainly be happy if he became a starter for the national team, I can hardly say otherwise, it would make me a hypocrite," he said.

"What do you think of Ventura? I will not hide it, I think he's lost his orientation, he's really panicked, I do not understand what he's doing anymore," he continued.

"I do not think he has enough character to orbit a young player like Donnarumma and get rid of a national team talisman like Buffon.Ventura also has other young players to be orbited," he said.

Iran, Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia Qualify to Russia.

South Korea following Japan's move to Russia's 2018 World Cup finals after a goalless draw against Uzbekistan on Tuesday (6/9).

This draw is enough to make South Korea end the third round of Asian zone qualifying in Group Two with a collection of 15 points.

The certainty of South Korea's escape is also helped by the results achieved by rivals, Syria. Needing a victory, Syria is only able to play a 2-2 draw against Iran who had already made sure to qualify.

South Korea's breakthrough is the ninth consecutive time and became the first Asian country to appear in the World Cup finals 10 times.

And Saudi Arabia became the fourth team from the Asian zone that qualified for the 2018 World Cup. The Saudis followed Iran, Japan and South Korea.

The Saudis ensure their breakthrough after a 1-0 win at home to Japan in the last Matchday Group B Asian qualifying round three, Wednesday (06/9).

The victory ensured the Saudis finished second place behind Japan and above Australia. The Saudis are also entitled to appear in the main round in Russia next year.

The sole goal of a Saudi victory over Japan was scored by substitute Fahad Al-Muwallad on 63 minutes.

In Group A, the top three are occupied by Iran, South Korea and Syria. The top three of Group B are Japan, Saudi Arabia and Australia.

FIFA began touring the 2018 World Cup trophy in Moscow

Label :
FIFA began touring the 2018 World Cup trophy in Moscow

FIFA began touring the 2018 World Cup trophy in Moscow on Saturday (9/9) local time. The event was attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

2018 World Cup is still ten months away. The Luzhniki Stadium, which will be used as the final and five other matches, has been renovated.
In the event of the trophy tour, also appeared to appear Brazilian football star Bebeto and French star David Trezeguet.

Putin said all infrastructure preparations will be completed soon. "All goes according to schedule," he said.

While Infantino admitted impressed with the revitalization of Luzhniki Stadium. "The stadium is really amazing, very beautiful and it has everything that is supposed to belong to the highest class stadium," he said.

Infantino believes that Russia will be a World Cup organizer that will continue to be remembered. "The World Cup is the most famous sport symbol, it is unique," Infantino said.

The World Cup trophy will be on display in 24 cities in Russia and over 50 countries in the World. Meanwhile, the World Cup will be held on June 14 to July 15 in 12 stadiums in 11 cities such as Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara

"With this technology, everyone or the audience can be a witness when the umpires make a wrong decision.This will be fair for everyone," he concluded.

Meanwhile, Argentina is threatened not to enter into the 2018 World Cup later in Russia.

With two games remaining in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers, Argentina's hopes of qualifying for Russia are getting thinner. Albiceleste failed to win the cons of Venezuela and they must achieve perfect results in the remaining matches.

Could the double World Cup champion fail to qualify for the finals for the second time since 1970? Let's weigh and calculate the potential to escape this Jorge Sampaoli troop.

Brazil has already secured tickets to the World Cup, while Bolivia and Venezuela have to wait four more years to break through the finals due to early exit.

That means living Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Peru and Ecuador are still competing for three other tickets - plus a play-off chance for the fifth-placed country.

Only seven points distinguish the second rank (Uruguay) with the eighth (Ecuador). The remaining two games can change the fate of seven struggling nations

Argentina, surprisingly, became one of the threatened teams. They only won six out of 15 matches and scored 16 goals. Sampaoli became the third coach to lead in this qualifying round after Gerardo Martino and Edgardo Bauza failed to maximize the role of Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero.

Mathematically, Argentina can still qualify for the finals, but they are required to improve quality on all fronts. Moreover, two opponents of Albiceleste both have the potential and the desire to escape.

From 20 World Cups to date, Argentina only failed to qualify once (they were absent in 1938, 1950, and 1954 for refusing invitations to appear). In 1970, Argentina was grouped with Peru and Bolivia, but failed to secure qualifying tickets.

They started the run with a poor performance and a 3-1 defeat of Bolivia in La Paz, then the second defeat of the Inca to make the fate of coach Adolfo Pedernera was on the edge.

Argentina must secure two victories against Bolivia in the rest of the game, but after a 1-0 win they were held to a 2-2 draw. This poor result ensured the blue-and-white team failed to compete in Mexico.

Fans Argentina still have hope to support his team in Russia. The two remaining matches are not the same level of opponent, but with the current inconsistent performance, Biancocelesti threatened to lift the suitcase.

Peru waits in early October, then there's Ecuador. Despite the lack of excellence, the two South American nations have a great ambition to qualify for Russia. Few mistakes made by Argentina, Chile can shift them from the fifth rank.

If Argentina do not move from fifth rank, they still have a chance to compete in Russia 2018 through a play-off match. In previous campaigns, the fifth rank CONMEBOL had to deal with North American or Asian countries. This time, the Oceania team has the potential to challenge them, namely New Zealand who leads 8-3 over the Solomon Islands.

In 1993, Argentina had experienced a thrilling moment in the play-offs. They have to face Australia in a two-leg match. Luckily, Albiceleste able to secure a 2-1 victory thanks to an own goal Alex Tobin
