Gianluigi Buffon started his career in Parma, a famous Italian football club, winning a UEFA Cup in 1999. Later he played for the Italian giant, Juventus, winning the Italian Serie A on consecutive years.
Buffon joined the Italy national team in 1997. In the 2006 FIFA World Cup he led them to the championship, allowing only two goals in 7 games and keeping 5 clean sheets(no goals allowed), which was a new World Cup record at that time. Therefore, some people still consider him the best goalkeeper in the world, even at almost 40 years of age.
