Euro Cup 2012: Can Mario Balotelli do an encore to topple Spain?
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Kiev: While all eyes were on Andrea Pirlo to come up with a formidable show, it was the Super Mario who stole the show with his sensational skills against the star-studded Germany team.
Balotelli made his presence felt in the field as he stormed past the Russian defense on two occasions producing fantastic goals.
In spite of disciplinary issues, Italy coach Cesare Prandelli showed a lot of confidence in his Manchester City striker who has the habit of being in news for the wrong reasons.
The controversial 21-year-old striker made his fans, his teammates and his coach very proud on the big occasion against Germany. When Italy take on defending champions Italy in the final match, Italian fans would hope a similar performance from Balotelli.
It was Ballotelli’s stellar performance that took the Germans by surprise and in the final against Spain, only if he controls his emotions for those 90 minutes, there is no reason why he cannot bag the coveted golden boot and win the second Euro Cup for Italy!
