Buffon sits out World Cup qualifier with Denmark

  •  

MILAN (AP) -Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has decided to sit out a World Cup qualifier against Denmark later Tuesday due to a left thigh muscle problem.

Buffon sat out training Monday but coach Cesare Prandelli had said he still wanted to play.

However, after a final test Tuesday morning, Buffon opted not to play.

It's unclear if Buffon might also be at risk of missing Sunday's match with Juventus against Serie A co-leader Napoli. Napoli `keeper Morgan De Sanctis is expected to replace him against Denmark.
