Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci has aimed another dig at England following their loss in Euro 2020 final.

Bonucci has been one of the vocal players from the Italy squad in their Euro triumph and as he prepares once again for their World Cup qualification, he has hit on the England players again after encouraging them to eat more pasta previously.

“I had just heard in the days before the final so many people talking about England inevitably winning. What happened on the pitch showed a very different reality.

“So many had said we would certainly go out in the Round of 16 or the quarter-finals, so I just let loose against all those who didn’t believe in us.

“Now we have come back together with great enthusiasm, the emotion of seeing friends and teammates who will always be bonded by that experience and that trophy. We hit the reset button and start again, sitting down at the table aware we are strong, but with humility,” said Bonucci in today’s press conference.

The Roberto Mancini men begin their World Cup qualification on Friday against Bulgaria before matches against Switzerland and Lithuania.
