Bonucci says Juventus can be proud of influence on Italy Euros run

Leonardo Bonucci feels Juventus can be proud of their influence in Italy's run to the Euros final.

The defender was part of an almost entirely Juventus-based defence along with Gigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini.

"When there is a block of players from the same club, they know each other well and so there was an excellent rapport. But this is also Cesare Prandelli's side and he gave us an important identity, which was playing the ball at all times.

"We showed against a great side like Germany that we could be united, solid and determined enough to run the game. We were missing something this evening."
