Bonucci motivated by ridicule by England fans to the Italian national anthem


Leonardo Bonucci looks very excited to celebrate Italy’s success in winning Euro 2020 at Wembley Stadium. Bonucci was sparked by the attitude of the England fans.

Italy won Euro 2020 after beating England in the final which was held at Wembley Stadium, Monday (12/7/2021) early morning WIB. The Azzurri won on penalties with a score of 3-2 after a 1-1 draw until extra time.

Bonucci became one of the players who most passionately celebrated Italy’s success. The 34-year-old defender shouted ‘It’s coming to Rome!’ in front of the camera and in the locker room.

Bonucci also shouted ‘you have to eat pasta, eat more pasta’ while celebrating with Giorgio Chiellini before the trophy presentation ceremony. “Eat more pasta” in Italian is an expression that means ‘get more experience’ and is often used in sports and football.

Leonardo Bonucci claimed to be motivated by the actions of British fans who cheered the Italian national anthem.

“They were cheering on the national anthem, they thought they had brought it home,” Bonucci told Radio RAI 1 as reported Football Italia.

“This, for me and the parents there (Giorgio Chiellini) even adds to our motivation. A personal satisfaction for me and Giorgio, who don’t always get the praise they deserve,” said the Juventus defender.

Bonucci especially dedicated the Italian title at Euro 2020 to Paolo Rossi. The Italian football legend who led Gli Azzurri to win the 1982 World Cup died in December 2020.

“This is dedicated to those who left us in this 1.5 year. Among so many champions, as was done for (Davide) Astori, I want to give a special dedication to Paolo Rossi, an extraordinary person,” said Bonucci.

“This trophy is for him and the Italian people who have suffered,” said Bonucci.
