Former Chelsea striker Casiraghi says Balotelli is ready for the senior Italy squad's trip to South Africa this summer.
"He is growing a great deal in terms of his behaviour and attitude," confirmed Under-21 boss Casiraghi after a 2-0 win over Hungary. "He's doing very well and yesterday when we went down to 10 men, he pitched in to help the team.
"Balotelli is a player who has nothing 'normal' about him. The future all depends on him.
"The World Cup is in his hands, his feet and his head."
