Classy Gianluigi Buffon applauds the Swedish anthem as San Siro crowd boos it

Here is veteran goalkeeper Gigi Buffon showing his class. The fans at the San Siro jeered the Swedish anthem as it was played ahead of the second leg of the World Cup playoff tie being contested by the two countries, but Buffon publicly applauded the anthem. It’s not the first time he’s done it- this incident has happened previously to other countries in the European qualifiers as well.

Unfortunately for Buffon, his dream of making it to a sixth World Cup was dashed by the Swedes, who drew 0-0 to book their spot at the 2018 World Cup at the expense of the Azzurri
