Gianluigi Buffon, The Best FIFA Goalkeeper 2017 (Italian)
23 Oct 2017
"It was really a very beautiful night. It is amazing to get recognition. I am very happy and proud because, I think, and hope, I have deserved it. At my age, winning such an award is really significant. I want also to say thanks to my team-mates and opponent for such a nice gesture (in voting me for the World XI) It means that the hard work to improve and have higher goals, finally got its reward."
