NotesEdit

  1. ^ Buffon was named to five of Italy's FIFA World Cup squads, but only featured in four of them (2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014), as he was an unused substitute in 1998.
  2. ^ Dino Zoff was also named to four of Italy's FIFA World Cup squads, but only featured in three of them (1974, 1978, and 1982), as he was an unused substitute in 1970.[8]
  3. ^ a b Unofficial due to Rodolfo Gavinelli's reported date of birth (1 January 1895) not being entirely certain, as according to some sources, he was born in 1891.[24][25]
  4. ^ Guido Masetti was also in Italy's 1934 and 1938 FIFA World Cup winning squads, but did not feature in any World Cup matches, as he was a reserve goalkeeper on both occasions.
  5. ^ Buffon was named Italy's second acting captain under Roberto Donadoni for Euro 2008 after incumbent Fabio Cannavaro was ruled out of the tournament due to injury, and as Italy's replacement captain Alessandro Del Piero was frequently deployed as a substitute.[96]
  6. ^ During UEFA Euro 2008, Alessandro Del Piero was named the Italian national team's acting captain, as Cannavaro was injured and unable to take part in the competition, however Gianluigi Buffon was often played as captain as Del Piero was frequently deployed as a substitute.[98][99][96]
  7. ^ Buffon served as second acting captain in UEFA Euro 2008 after Alessandro Del Piero was named the team's acting captain, as Cannavaro was injured and unable to take part in the competition, however Del Piero was frequently deployed as a substitute.[96] Although Buffon was officially named Italy's new captain in 2010,[100] following Cannavaro's retirement subsequent to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Andrea Pirlo was named the Italian national team's acting captain after the tournament (while Daniele De Rossi was named the team's second acting captain),[100][101][102] as Buffon was ruled out until the end of the year due to injury, and only made his first appearance as Italy's official captain on 9 February 2011, in a 1–1 friendly away draw against Germany.[100][103][104][105]
  8. ^ This edition of the tournament was interrupted due to the annexation of Austria to Nazi Germany on 12 March 1938.
