A sour-sweet comeback for Gigi Buffon at Parma. The legendary goalkeeper (43) made his re-appearance tonight (Friday) in his youth team, 20 years and 7369 days after the first time he wore the media.
The exciting comeback game in Serie B ended in a slightly disappointing way, with Prussina coached by Fabio Grosso, his partner to win the 2006 World Cup with the Italian team, setting up 2: 2 in the final minutes.
Buffon absorbed the first goal from the feet of Alessio Zarbin in the 31st minute. Before the half, Parma managed to equalize from a goal by Gennaro Totino (41) and in the second half even completed a makeover when Dennis Mann found the net (52). The victory was already in the air, but substitute Gabriel Sharpentier hit an accurate and not very strong corner just before extra time, setting the result of the game.
Buffon hopes that in the following rounds it will look a little better, hoping to help Parma return to Serie A after one season.
