Juventus defender Bonucci: England fans booing our anthem inspired myself and old man Chiellini

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has taken fresh aim at England fans after helping Italy win the final of Euro 2020.

Bonucci admits the behaviour of England's fans acted only as motivation throughout the Wembley final.

Back home and at one of several planned trophy parades, Bonucci declared: "A final should be played with half a stadium for each team, but winning like this has been even more beautiful.

"The English thought they'd won, they boo the anthem and these things to me and to the other old man (Giorgio) Chiellini this gave us even more motivation.

"It's a personal satisfaction for Giorgio and I, who sometimes don't get the praise we deserve."
