TA888 - Gianluigi Buffon's plan is to play sport betting in the 2018 World Cup and then retire.

If Italy qualifies for the finals, the 2018 World Cup will be the sixth World Cup for Buffon. Never before has any players taken part in six World Cups. Buffon himself entered the Italian sport betting squad at the 1998 World Cup, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014.

Gli Azzurri eliminated Sweden in the play-offs with a 0-1 aggregate. After the second leg play-off at San Siro on Tuesday (14/11/2017) pm dawn, which ended in a goalless draw, Buffon could not hold his sadness. The 39-year-old was crying.
"It is unfortunate that my last official online sport betting match coincided with Italy's failure to qualify for the World Cup," Buffon told Rai Sport. Buffon play his debut in the Italian national team in October 1997 and until now collecting 175 caps. He became the player with the most online sport betting performance with Italy.
