Soccer: Italy's Buffon to miss Denmark clash

(ANSA) - Milan, October 16 - Italy captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will miss Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Denmark at the San Siro in Milan after failing to recover from a thigh strain. The Juventus player trained for the first time since Friday's 3-1 victory in Armenia late on Monday but the national team have decided not to risk using him after a fitness test on Tuesday morning. Napoli keeper Morgan De Sanctis will take his place. The Azzurri, runners-up at Euro 2012, are top of European qualifying Group B with seven points from three games.
