ITALY star Alessandro Florenzi had a heartfelt message for his mum after their Euro 2020 triumph.
The 30-year-old full-back was one of the first to collect his winner’s medal after the Italians defeated England on penalties.
Cameras showed the moment the Roma ace collected his medal and spent a couple of seconds looking at it in awe.
He then headed straight towards the camera lens and with a huge grin on his face shouted: “Look mum, look!”
Florenzi also posted a picture of himself with the trophy on Instagram alongside the caption: “This is for all of you, you who have suffered in these 18 months… we just tried to make you proud of us and to put all the ITALIAN spirit on the field!”
Italy’s celebrations continued long into the night with captain Georginio Chiellini sleeping with the trophy and his winner’s medal.
He was also pictured laying down in bed alongside defensive partner Leonardo Bonucci with the trophy separating the duo.
The Italians also wildly celebrated inside the Wembley dressing room.
