Italy's World Cup qualifier against Denmark is meaningless to Cesare Prandelli's men, with the Azzurri having already qualified for next summer's showpiece event.

However, for a certain Gianluigi Buffon the game will represent one of the proudest moments of his glittering career, as he earns his 137th cap and in doing so becomes the all team record appearance maker for the Italians.

Now captain of his country, Buffon has been one of the first names on the team sheet for a decade now as he's continued to show why he's been awarded the Serie A Goalkeeper of the year award a whopping nine times.

With Buffon looking as sharp as ever for both club and country, he'll no doubt be between the sticks in Brazil next summer, racing towards 150 caps for his beloved Italy.

With this in mind, we've chosen to have a look at six other great goalkeepers who gloved up and represented their country over a century of times.
