In an interview to the Italian daily La Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy's goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, spoke about the latest political controversies (an MP asked footballers for financial sacrifices): Cannavaro said: Italy is a ridiculous country. It's a bit exaggerated, but we are a country full of contradictions and football is not immune from it even though footballers are always in the spotlight and concretely contribute with their money and skill. I don't know if other people with other responsibilities do the same". Talking about football: how's Lippi compared to 2006? "He's absolutely the same. He strongly believes and his trust is contagious. We want another fantastic month. We are sure about it".
