Italy defender and star Leonardo Bonucci was exposed to a funny situation after celebrating with the fans his country’s victory over Spain and qualifying for the “Euro 2020” final.
And some Italian channels broadcast a video showing Bonucci celebrating with the fans his qualification for the Euro 2020 final.
Bonucci’s face when he realizes the steward thinks he’s a fan trying to get on the field is priceless.
Bonucci laughing and giving her a hug after she realizes (probably with horror) her mistake is even more priceless.pic.twitter.com/bKTYPeNPKl

After turning around to return to the stadium, a security official in the stadium stood in front of him and grabbed him and tried to stop him, thinking that he was one of the fans, so Bonucci stared at her with great astonishment, before the official realized her mistake, and the Italian defender laughed with her.
Italy qualified for the Euro 2020 final, after beating Spain 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw after extra time on Tuesday.
After the final whistle, the Italian players, the coaching staff and all the substitutes took to the field, celebrating with the fans behind the goal.
Italy will play in the final against England or Denmark at Wembley Stadium, next Sunday.
