LEONARDO BONUCCI taunted England fans after Italy’s Euro 2020 win by shouting: “You need to eat more pasta!”

The Juventus star was at the heart of Roberto Mancini’s penalty shoot-out victory at Wembley, firing his spot-kick perfectly past Jordan Pickford while also playing a key role in the 1-1 stalemate.

Bonucci first declared ‘it’s coming to Rome’ after Bukayo Saka’s missed penalty handed Italy victory, in a dig at England’s adopted anthem Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home).

And the veteran, who guzzled beer in post-match celebrations, has now fired back at England fans who reportedly mocked Italian cuisine with chants during the match.

Bonucci said: “You all still have to eat a lot of pasta!”

He then continued: “They wanted to bring the cup back to England but we are the ones who will take it to Rome by plane.

“Absolutely (we were motivated by It’s Coming Home).

“We heard it day in, day out ever since Wednesday night, since the Denmark game that the cup would be coming home to London.

“Sorry for them but actually the cup will be taking a nice flight to Rome and that way Italians all over the world can savour this competition.

“It is for everyone, we said from day one it was for them and for us.
