Bonucci: 'Now bring on Spain'

Leonardo Bonucci warned Italy “must not rest on our laurels” after sweeping Germany aside to face Spain in the Euro 2012 Final.

“The credit goes to the whole team, as we attack and defend in a united fashion, so that makes it easier for the defenders.

“Now we mustn’t rest on our laurels, as Sunday is very close and we want to win this trophy.

“Considering the way Spain play, it’s not easy when dealing with those who come up from deep and run into space, but we showed in the group game that we were equal to them and can counter them.”

Italy opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Spain, but at the time adopted a 3-5-2 system. Will they return to that for the Final?

“That is something the Coach will decide, also looking at the lessons from the group game, but we are ready for any system.”
