Bouncing Rakitic free-kick almost beats returning Buffon!


Gianluigi Buffon was restored to the Juventus starting lineup after Italy's stunning World Cup exit to Sweden, and the veteran goalkeeper almost conceded an unusual goal to Ivan Rakitic's long-range free-kick. Rakitic launched a long ball into the penalty box from about 40 yards out, trying to pick out his Barcelona teammates. Buffon was also expecting someone to get to the ball first, but no one did as the ball took a bounce and almost beat the veteran at his near post, bouncing off the woodwork!
