Italy defender Leonardo Bonucci explained that facing England in Euro 2020 The final at Wembley will not frighten the Azzurri.
Having played five out of six matches at Wembley, England made their home advantage significant as they conceded only one goal and won all but one of the matches.
The final will be played at Wembley on Sunday, and the ground advantage could once again be decisive for England.
However, Bonucci said Italy wanted to have fun and would not be overwhelmed by the atmosphere at Wembley.
“Playing in their house does not scare us. We are only thinking about playing football and having fun. The rest is just gossip. On the pitch there will be the best display of European and world football from Italy, England and the referees,” Bonucci said on Friday.
“We are looking forward to entering the stadium even though most of the fans in attendance will be English. We want to do something historic, put in a great performance and then we will see how it ends.”
Bonucci admits Italy will need to be careful about England’s attack in Euro 2020 final
After a slow start to Euro 2020, Harry Kane has finally found his feet and his composure in front of goal.
With four goals, Kane is only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Patrick Schick in the scoring charts, and he hopes to score and lead England to their first European title.
Bonucci admitted that Italy will have to be careful against the Tottenham Hotspur star when the two sides meet in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday.
“Kane? We’re not finding out about him now, it’s been years since he’s been doing good things with Tottenham, England.
“In the last three games we have been fortunate to face the three best strikers in the world (Romelo Lukaku, Alvaro Morata and Kane). It is just an extra motivation not to give up anything.
“They have a very strong striker and we will need to be very careful with them, the defense and the whole team,” Bonucci said.
