ITALY legend Daniele De Rossi celebrated England’s Euro 2020 final dream sliding away – by doing the same on a beer-soaked table.

Azzurri players chanted amid wild rejoicing as assistant coach De Rossi took a spectacular head-first plunge in their Wembley dressing room.

Daniele De Rossi can’t be accused of going down too easily as he soared across the table before finally tumbling off

Daniele De Rossi bigs himself up for an unusual way to rejoice after Italy sunk England in a shootout

And shootout hero keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma showed that if De Rossi was an alco-troll then he could rub it in even more for the Three Lions as he led a raucous chorus of “It’s coming Rome!”

AC Milan hero Donnarumma, who has been linked to Manchester United and Chelsea, even posted that adapted version of England’s favourite footie anthem on his Instagram story

Three Lions subs Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed penalties as Italy won the shootout 3-2 after a 1-1 draw in front of 60,000 at Wembley.

And De Rossi flew across the table to complete a flight of fantasy for Italy – after they failed to qualify for the last World Cup.

The 117-cap former Roma defensive midfielder, 37, didn’t look in as good a shape as the veteran Azzurri defenders who had helped shut out Kane, Sterling and Co.

But he glided across the table as fast as any player moved on the pitch, before tumbling off at the end.

And that was a little like the Three Lions in their first final since winning the 1966 World Cup.

England zipped around early on, boosted by Luke Shaw thumping the quickest ever goal in a Euros final inside the first two minutes.

But they lost steam in the second half as Leonardo Bonucci bundled a deserved 67th minute equaliser.

Gareth Southgate’s men briefly regained their buoyancy in extra time, only for their hopes to belly-flop in familiar fashion when it came to penalties.

But Sancho and Saka are still barely out of water wings as internationals.

So the Three Lions should still be confident of making a splash over the next few years.
