Gianluigi Buffon earned his 167th international cap for Italy during Tuesday’s 0-0 draw against Germany, in the process equaling Spain counterpart Iker Casillas’ appearance record.

The Juventus custodian started the clash at San Siro before being replaced at half-time, during which he made a number of saves.

Buffon is already Italy’s record appearance holder after making his debut in the Azzurri shirt in 1997, before his international understudy Gianluigi Donnarumma was born.
