Rino was at the centre of a heated debate when, following the Bosman ruling, he was plucked from Perugia´s nursery team aged seventeen and went off to Scotland with a contract worth several hundred million lira a year. Perugia’s president, Gaucci, had refused to offer him professional terms. His time in Scottish football helped his development on and off the park.

In Salerno they saddled him with a different label instead, that of "The White Davids".

The giant 'keeper has shown stunning form in recent seasons, but has still not been able to dislodge the much younger Gianluigi Buffon as Dino Zoff's number one. Though he made his international debut in 1995, his international appearances have been limited. However, he seems to have seen off the challenges of Angelo Peruzzi, Luca Marchegiani and Gianluca Pagluica as second choice. He took over as number two when Peruzzi was forced to pull out of the Italian squad at the 1998 FIFA World Cup. An excellent shot-stopper, Toldo's size also makes him a formidable figure.

Paolo is a gifted, crowd-pleasing forward of the very highest order, possessing a spell-binding array of close ball skills and a powerful shot. However, there is a downside. The Italian has a temper which has been known to overflow into naughtiness.

Background
Italy became a nation-state in 1861 when the city-states of the peninsula, along with Sardinia and Sicily, were united under King Victor EMMANUEL II. An era of parliamentary government came to a close in the early 1920s when Benito MUSSOLINI established a Fascist dictatorship. His disastrous alliance with Nazi Germany led to Italy's defeat in World War II. A democratic republic replaced the monarchy in 1946 and economic revival followed. Italy was a charter member of NATO and the European Economic Community (EEC). It has been at the forefront of European economic and political unification, joining the Economic and Monetary Union in 1999. Persistent problems include illegal immigration, organized crime, corruption, high unemployment, sluggish economic growth, and the low incomes and technical standards of southern Italy compared with the prosperous north.

He played midfield on amateur soccer, and maybe that's why he doesn't have problems when playing the ball with his feet. Buffon is always very attentive of the development of the games and is always prepared to get out of the box in order to cut the actions of the rivals.

For the 1997-98 season, his dreams come true. He was bought by Juventus management. Superpippo, as he is called, arrived from a city where Juventus is followed a lot. When he was still a kid, his parents wanted him to play as goal keeper, and he obeyed them. But, one fine day, his instint made him play as attacker and began scoring numerous goals. He is a humile playery, but sure of himself and his self capacities. Surely, he is one of the best young players, italian soccer can offer. At Juventus, everyone expects a lot from him. He already gave a demonstration of his talents. He is very able in getting unmarked and is very opportunist. He is considered a remake of Paolo Rossi, but he dislikes these comparisons. Together with Del Piero, they are the most representative duo of the new "Italian Boys".

    When Maradona left Napoli, he passed on his number ten football jersey to Gianfranco, because Maradona considered him to be his natural successor. Gianfranco's term in Napoli was fundamental for his career: he played with champions like Careca, Fonseca, Ferrara and Alemao. He became a famous player, feared by his opponents, particularly for his free-kicks. Gianfranco managed to stand out and draw attention to himself, showing he is fast, courageous and with a lot of initiative on the pitch. In November 1996 Gianfranco was bought by Chelsea for £ 4.5 million. On February 12, 1997 at Wembley, he confirmed his great qualities again, scoring the only goal of the game for Italy, against England. On that occasion he was voted "Man of the Match". Nicknamed "Marazola" or "Italian Maradona".

    The Italian national football team is the national football team of Italy and is controlled by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC - Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio).

    Italy is considered one of the most successful national teams, having won three World Cups (1934, 1938, 1982), one European championship (1968), and one Olympic Gold Medal (1936).

    The traditional jersey colour of the national team (as well as of all Italian teams and athletes, except in motor sports) is sky blue (azzurro, in Italian), and therefore national team members are nicknamed Azzurri.
