      Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci feature as Italy beat Albania while Mario Mandzukic helps Croatia to victory over Ukraine

      Friday night yielded two positive and important 2018 World Cup qualifying results for Juventus' international stars as Italy and Croatia recorded victories over Albania and Ukraine respectively.

      Stealing the show once more was a certain Gianluigi Buffon who made his 1000th career appearance in his side's 2-0 win in Palermo, to join Spain at the top of Group G on 13 points.

      Fellow Bianconeri Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli were at hand to ensure that Gigi's big night was marked with a clean sheet; Roma's Daniele de Rossi and Lazio's Ciro Immobile scoring the goals.

      Meanwhile in Zagreb, Mario Mandzukic and Marko Pjaca's Croatia took a firm grip over Group I by defeating qualification rivals Ukraine by a goal to nil at the Stadion Maksimir.

      Nikola Kalinic's goal seven minutes before half time the deciding moment on the night.

      The Road to Russia continues this evening as Miralem Pjanic's Bosnia take on Gibraltar and Stephan Lichtsteiner's Switzerland face Latvia, both kicking off at 18.00 CET.
