Italian defender Leonardo Bonucci says Italy are not afraid to contest the EURO 2020 final on English soil when the two sides face each other on Monday.

Bonucci says even though there will be a mostly English crowd, it will give them additional motivation.

As many as 1,000 Italian fans will be allowed inside Wembley to watch the game.

34 year old Bonucci will line up alongside 36-year-old centre-back partner Giorgio Chiellini to face an England team with an average age of 25.

Bonucci joked it will be youngsters against old men in the final.

England are playing in their first ever European final while Italy last won the tournament in 1968.

The EURO 2020 final will be played at 7am on Monday.
