Claudio Marchisio has trolled England and fans of the Three Lions by claiming he wants to sign the petition to replay the Euro 2020 final for he believes Italy can "beat England another one thousand times".

Roberto Mancini's side won the penalty shootout after a tense 1-1 draw in regulation time to claim their second European crown. And Juventus legend Marchisio, who helped Italy knock England out on penalties at Euro 2012, has further rubbed salt into England's wounds, backing a petition to replay the final.

Taking to Twitter, the 35-year-old said: "Sorry but where is the petition signed to have the Italy-England final replayed? We win it another thousand times."

The petition launched after the final reached notoriety quickly, and is, at the time of writing, on the cusp of its target of 150,000 signatures.

Marchisio's history with England goes back a long way, having scored one of his five international goals in the 2-1 win at the 2014 World Cup. The Three Lions have never beaten the Azzurri at a major international tournament, as their wait for silverware continues.
