Roberto Mancini’s team won the coveted European title after conceding three penalties to the Three Lions at Wembley Stadium.
Former Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto’o, Obinna Nsofor and Faouzi Ghoulam, Napoli, congratulated Italy on their success at Euro 2020.
The Azzurri defeated England 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw at the end of extra time to lift their second European Championship title on Sunday.
Italy found themselves already behind in the second minute, but Leonardo Bonucci got them back in the game with his 67th minute up close, which canceled out Luke Shaw’s starting chance.
Although Andrea Belotti and Jorginho missed their penalty goals, England thwarted their hopes of winning the European Trophy for the first time in their history after failing to convert their last three attempts.
Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed their efforts and Roberto Mancini’s men won 3-2.
While Eto’o, Nsofor and Ghoulam were celebrating with the Italians, Everton loaner Yannick Bolasie comforted his friends in Gareth Southgate’s team.
