Balotelli hoping to get one over Man City pals
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."
