Gianluigi Buffon is one of two changes to Italy's starting lineup for tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier against Norway.

Gianluigi Buffon has returned to the Italy starting lineup for tonight's Euro 2016 qualifier against Norway in Oslo.

The experienced goalkeeper was left on the bench in favour of Salvatore Sirigu for Thursday's friendly against Netherlands, but has now been restored to the starting XI despite Sirigu keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory.

It is one of two changes made by Antonio Conte in his first competitive match in charge of the Azzurri, with Roma's Alessandro Florenzi also replacing Claudio Marchisio in the side.

Norway also make two changes to the side that was beaten 1-0 by England in a friendly at Wembley last Wednesday, with Tarik Elyounoussi and the injured Martin Linnes making way for Havard Nielsen and Per Egil Flo respectively.

Norway: Nyland; Forren, Flo, Skjelbred, Jenssen; Nordtveit, Elabdellaoui, Daehli, Johansen, Nielsen; King

Italy: Buffon; Bonucci, Darmian, Ranocchia, Astori; De Sciglio, De Rossi, Giaccherini, Florenzi, Zaza; Immobile
