Francesco Toldo
Club:Internazionale
Position:Goalkeeper

Francesco Toldo was one of the outstanding keepers in Euro 2000 after a late call-up to the squad.

His most impressive match was the semi-final against Holland when, in normal time, he was twice unbeaten from the penalty spot.

He saved Frank de Boer's effort and his imposing frame was no doubt partly responsible for putting Patrick Kluivert off as he struck the post.

Italy hung on for the draw and then Toldo saw them comfortably through the resulting penalty shoot-out.

He was then just one minute away from a clean sheet against France that would have won Italy the trophy.

The former Fiorentina man made his international debut back in 1995 and will rival Gianluigi Buffon for a starting place in the Far East.
