Balotelli hoping to get one over Man City pals

Mario Balotelli hoping to get one over his Manchester City teammates going into Italy's Euro2012 quarterfinal against England.

Balotelli is determined to get the better of his City team-mates James Milner, Joe Hart and Joleon Lescott in tonight's encounter.

He said: "I hope it will be a good match and it will be fun playing against my Manchester City team-mates.

"They know me and I know them. I just hope it is going to be fun but I want to win even if they are my team-mates and put in a good performance and I hope they will lose.

"All the players at Manchester City in the England side are my friends, Milner, Hart, Lescott.

"I hope we win the game and I mean it with all my heart and soul."
