West Ham

star Angelo Ogbonna expressed his happiness after being included in the Italian national team list for Euro 2020.

Ogbonna, who joined West Ham from Juventus in 2015, considers himself one of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League. He had one of his best seasons at West Ham, finishing sixth in the league. Now the Italian defender has expressed his happiness after being invited to Euro 2020.

He told

Corriere della Sera


"I am very amazed and also bitter, perhaps he did not take into consideration the West Ham championship.

"We fought until the end for the Champions League qualification with Jorginho and Palmieri's Chelsea, who finished higher, but we showed that we can beat any team."

Ogbonna added:

"In sport, meritocracy must prevail, based on the championship in which one plays, on the statistics, on the value of the player.

"And this time, in my opinion, it did not prevail."
