Keep rubbing Italy’s face in the pineapple pizza to top off Euro 2020 with a historic Three Lions victory.
Readers have been sharing their love for a fruity slice since the Daily Star revealed on Friday that the mere sight of a Hawaiian could put our rivals off their game.
The tactic has worked a treat as Italy fans are now seething ahead of tonight’s final – suggesting their touchy footie team will also be getting their knickers in a twist about our push for victory.
Italy’s pizza purists believe a pineapple topping is an “abomination” and their football fans have even flown a banner calling for it to be banned.
One Italian admitted online about our cheeky campaign: “Pineapple pizza is worse than coronavirus.”
Others said it was a “teenage” ploy to distract the Italy side, with one rambling in a huge web post: “There is no need to insult people’s culture.”
But England fans backing our pizza-taking have told them to stop being so “po-faced” and see the funny side.
They have also been buying up Hawaiian deep pans by the bucketload.
