Bonucci, the new ‘captain’: "The World Cup is still very painful for us"


Leonardo Bonucci will collect this Wednesday, at the Finalissima that Italy will play tomorrow against Argentina at Wembley, the armband of captain Giorgio Chiellini, who will leave the ‘azzurra’ team after this match, and spoke at a recent press conference in London stadium.

“Giorgio Chiellini will give me the bracelet. You have to enjoy his last day with the Italian team. He was a great captain, replacing another great captain like Buffon,” Bonucci said.

Despite the fact that the teams that won the European Championship and the Copa America in 2021 will face off tomorrow, the disaster in Italy in March is floating around in the atmosphere without them qualifying for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

“Since the World Cup will be held in five months, it still hurts us. We made a lot of mistakes and that’s why we didn’t qualify for the World Cup. It’s our fault,” Bonucci confessed, ready to turn the page. “We have made history at this stadium (at Wembley Italy won the European Championship against England on penalties) and tomorrow will be a very important match to start from scratch and put Italy where it always deserves”.

I am grateful to Messi

In addition, Bonucci thanked Leo Messi, who made sure it wouldn’t be good for football without Italy at the World Cup.

“We are grateful to Messi for his words. It will be a great game tomorrow and our goal is to win this new trophy,” the Italy defender added.

Bonucci will have the opportunity this Wednesday to be the defender with the most goals in the history of the Italian national team: “It’s going to be something very important, very good.”
