Gianluigi Buffon shrugged off his individual heroics after his penalty save gave Italy a vital point against Romania.

The Juventus veteran showed why he is one of the best goalkeepers in the world as he kept out Adrian Mutu´s spot-kick late in the game to make sure the world champions held onto a 1-1 draw in their second Group C encounter.

"A save is a save," said Buffon. "I have been fortunate."
