Bonucci still enjoying Euro 2020 finals after three months

Leonardo Bonucci reflected on UEFA Euro 2020 Final football match which took exactly three months ago today. Italy won the Euro 2020 title against England and Bonucci chose social media to tell that he is still enjoying it.

The Juventus veteran wrote on Instagram, “The sense of belonging, the sense of the group, the sense of friendship. Three months ago, these values brought us on the roof of Europe and at every gathering, the desire to embrace my brothers is always overflowing. After three months, after several matches and many different emotions lived… I tell you only one thing: I am still enjoying it. Champions of Europe, brothers forever.”

Three months ago today, the Azzurri won the continental title after a hard-fought Final versus England at Wembley Stadium. Bonucci scored the equalizer and a penalty kick in the shootout, but Gigio Donnarumma stopped Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka after Marcus Rashford struck the post.

In an interview with The Athletic in September, Bonucci discussed Azzurri’s win at EURO 2020. “We were never presumptuous about it. We stayed humble and that’s what made the difference. We had a great team, a great coach and a great staff behind us. To give our country and ourselves that kind of joy was something truly special,” he said.

“We wanted to show them [England] that the final hadn’t already been decided. That they hadn’t already won. Hearing that song on repeat and the comment from Declan Rice saying England were 10 times more motivated to win than us… well, they’re the kind of mistakes young players make,” the Italian added.

“You don’t say that. You should never say you want something more than somebody else or you’re better than somebody else. You should always put yourself on the same level as your opponent, keep a low profile and strike at the right moment.”
