Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon believes Italy can win the World Cup.
 
These comments come as the Azzurri have failed to impress under Giampiero Ventura, condemning them to a playoff spot in order to qualify for the major tournament next summer.
 
Speaking to Copa 90, however, the 39-year-old said that “we need to earn it, I hope we can make it. Can we dream of victory? When you represent Italy and you participate in a competition you can’t not dream of winning it. I have never started a tournament thinking of not winning it, it’s human to believe so”.
 
The Italians are one of the top seeds in the playoffs, beating Albania last night in an uninspiring 1-0 game thanks to Antonio Candreva’s winner.
 
The Italian star also said that the best players he’s ever been on a pitch with were “Ronaldo, Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zidane”, before adding that “I’ve always had a special relationship with defenders:  from Thuram to Cannavaro, then Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci and now Rugani. And Ferrara, too”.
