Giorgio Chiellini improved the record of his former teammate and good friend Gianluigi Buffon for the oldest captain in the final of the European Championship. With his participation in the Wembley match against England, Kielini is 36 years and 331 days old. For comparison, in the final of Euro 2012 against Spain Buffon is 34 years and 154 days old.
Chiellini is in the national team since 2004 and together with Bonucci are the Italians with the most matches for the national team of the players of Euro 2020. However, both are far from the record of Buffon from 176 matches.
