France game like a derby - Buffon
Gianluigi Buffon says Italy's friendly clash with France will be like a derby.
The two teams met in the final of Euro 2000, which France won, and again six years later in the World Cup final, which Italy came through triumphant.
"France remain a strong nation in European football, one that is always capable of playing at a high level," Buffon told Le Parisien. "Playing against France is like playing a derby."
