Some England fans seemingly did not take their UEFA EURO 2020 Final defeat to Italy very well, sending an expletive-filled letter to the Italian Embassy in London.
The Azzurri recovered from an early Luke Shaw goal thanks to Leonardo Bonucci, before winning the trophy on penalties at Wembley Stadium.
Seeing Giorgio Chiellini and his teammates lift the European Championship cup to the sky in London was perhaps too much for some Three Lions supporters to take.
Alessandro Motta, who works at the Italian Embassy in London, showed on social media a letter he had received regarding the Final.
“Fair Play is a worldwide understood concept, which found its origins in modern sport in Great Britain…” wrote Motta with a laughing emoji.
We cannot publish the contents of the typed letter for obvious reasons, but among the phrases were “greasy”, accusations the match was “fixed” and suggestions Italy “won by violence, intimidation and cheating.”
You can see the original tweet and letter here, so be warned of extremely foul and offensive language.
The Euros represented Italy’s sixth major trophy, including four World Cups, while this was England’s only major tournament Final since 1966.
