Italy beat England on penalties, scoring three kicks against two for the Three Lions.
Pique wrote: “Congratulations to the Italy team for winning the European Championship Euro 2020, they were the best team in the tournament.”
He added, “Having the opportunity to be the first shooter in the penalty shootout gave them the opportunity and allowed them to waste, as happened against Spain.”
