Records just tumble when Gianluigi Buffon is around.

Another one will fall tonight when Italy go head-to-head with Macedonia, Buffon will wear the brand new home kit in goal.

The Italian Football Federation alongside PUMA and the Italian players have decided to wear the away kit whilst Gianluigi Buffon will adopt the ‘azzurri’ blue for the first time in his career.

PUMA and the Italian Football Federation wanted to reward ‘Gigi’ for his hard work and dedication over the last 20 years.

To celebrate the release of the new ‘Azzurri’ home kit, alongside a brand new team badge, murals have been painted around the world of Buffon wearing the jersey in honour on his stunning career.
