Italy have a special ability to achieve beyond their means in times of difficulty, according to captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Italy are just one win away from landing a major title and once again in the wake of a match-fixing scandal back home.

"There's something special that's for sure. After all the gossip, Italians have a sense of responsibility and respect for the shirt that goes beyond our limits. "If you look to our history and our nation we don't always succeed but we bring together a compact group who think in an equivcoal way and that's our strength."
