Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon believes Juventus team-mate Vincenzo Iaquinta could be the surprise element in the crucial European Championship qualifier against Scotland.

Iaquinta is expected to start on the bench but Italy coach Roberto Donadoni could spring a surprise and use the striker from the start at Hampden Park.

"Iaquinta is one of the most in-form players of Serie A at the moment," Buffon said. "I think he can make a big contribution. He has so much hunger, so much enthusiasm to consolidate himself on the international scene."
