The guys who keep the ball out of the net after all else breaks down could decide this World Cup. If so, Italy might have the edge with Gianluigi Buffon. The Italians have allowed one goal in five games, and that was an own-goal against the U.S. Not that opponents haven't had chances. But Buffon, on his third World Cup team, has been either solid or spectacular.
