Italy defender, Leonardo Bonucci, has said they gave England “a lesson” after their penalty shootout victory over the hosts at Wembley in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.
Bonucci made it 1-1 in the second half of the game, cancelling out Luke Shaw’s early opener.
The Juventus centre back then converted a penalty during the 3-2 shootout win.
“We are just enjoying seeing 58,000 people leaving even before the trophy presentation, it was something which really delighted us.
“The trophy now is coming to Rome.
“They thought it was staying here in London, and they’re unhappy. I feel bad for them, but once again Italy has given them a lesson,” Bonucci said.
The 34-year-old taunted England fans after Gianluigi Donnarumma saved Bukayo Saka’s penalty, which sealed the victory for the Italians.
He grabbed a TV camera and shouted: “It’s coming to Rome, it’s coming to Rome” — a reference to England’s “Football’s Coming Home” anthem, which was played before the match and chanted by supporters throughout.
