Bonucci taunted England supporters after victory in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley about needing to "eat more pasta".
"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," said Bonucci in today's press conference.
“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."
