“A historic goal is a dream come true and the credit goes to the coach, the whole squad,” Goal.com quoted Bonucci in a saying to RAI sports. When we got together in Sardinia, there was something different compared to the past, We slowly gained confidence, certainty, unity. This was the icing on the cake that makes us legends.
“It’s a unique feeling and we are relishing it. Seeing 65,000 people leave before the trophy was handed out is something to relish, now the cup is coming to Rome. They thought it was staying in London, sorry for them, but Italy once again taught a lesson. We said during the warm-up, what was happening in the stands was purely just background noise. We had 34 games unbeaten, all we needed to do was exactly what we had done so far to get here, not one bit more, not one bit less.’
