Chiellini claims he ‘cursed’ Saka before decisive penalty miss

Italy star Giorgio Chiellini has claimed that he put a “curse” on Bukayo Saka before the England teenager’s decisive penalty miss in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final. 

Saka saw his spot kick saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma, handing Italy the European title after the two teams drew 1-1 over 120 minutes. 

Just before Saka took the kick, Chiellini screamed “Kiricocho!” – a word that’s been used by footballers for decades to impart bad luck on the opposition.
