Inter Milan president Moratti: Balotelli deserves Italy call

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti heaped praise on Mario Balotelli after their Champions League win over Rubin Kazan.

The youngster scored one and created the other in the crucial victory.

Moratti said: "Jose Mourinho played him from the first minute in a game of the Champions League, this means that he has confidence in the player's qualities and he is learning about the need for continuity and attention during the game.

"Balotelli also has the ability that sometimes you need to solve a game like the one last night. Without a doubt, for me he is one to keep in consideration for the national team because when you have those qualities you can turn a game."
