One of the greatest goalkeepers in the history of the game, Dino Zoff captained Italy on 59 occasions and led his country to glory at the 1982 FIFA World Cup™.

That memorable triumph was the high point of a 15-year international career that saw Zoff amass 112 appearances, a tally that, until fairly recently, made him the most capped keeper in Italian history.

That title now belongs to the current No1, Gianluigi Buffon, who holds the overall *Azzurri *record with 139.
