Buffon : I Only Suffered A Minor Injury

Italian international goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has played down World Cup injury fears after he was forced off at halftime of Italy’s draw with Paraguay.

It was reported that Buffon felt a twinge in his back during the warm-up and had to be taken off at half-time.

The Juventus star later explained that : “I thought that I had torn a muscle and ruined everything, but it turns out it was just a small strain of the sciatic nerve,”.

“I hope to recover in two days.”
