Buffon confident of maintaining form

Buffon confident of maintaining form

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon established himself as the world's top goalkeeper with match-winning displays at the 2006 World Cup, and he's confident he can make a similar impact in South Africa.
Buffon missed two months of the season with a knee injury, but now feels back to his best.
At the Italy training camp in the Italian Alps, Buffon said: "I have faith in my ability. To say otherwise would be a lie."
World champion Italy has friendlies against Mexico and Switzerland before leaving for South Africa, where it will play Paraguay, New Zealand and Slovakia in group play.
