Gianluigi Buffon will play his 1,000th senior match when Italy face Albania in a World Cup qualifier on Friday with the veteran seemingly no closer to thinking about retirement.

The Italy and Juventus goalkeeper, 39, who has previously joked he will retire when he is 65, was giving little away about his future plans after arriving in Palermo on Thursday.

Gianni De Biasi's Albania exit be 'as controversial' as Claudio Ranieri axe

Gianni De Biasi was a contender to replace Antonio Conte as Italy coach in 2016.

Israel stayed hot on the heels of Spain and Italy in FIFA European World Cup Qualifying Group G with a 3-0 victory over nine-man Albania.

With Spain and Italy -- the 2010 and 2006 World Cup winners respectively -- winning on Saturday, Israel remained a point behind both.

The visitors led through an 18th-minute Eran Zahavi penalty after Berat Djimsiti was dismissed for fouling Zahavi.

On 55 minutes Zahavi was fouled in the area again -- by Etrit Berisha who also saw red -- but the midfielder's second...
