Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli is confident he will soon play for Italy.

Balotelli accepts his omission from this year's World Cup squad.

When asked for his reaction to Marcello Lippi's preliminary 30-man squad, Balotelli said: "I am very happy that Giuseppe Rossi has been called up: I like him a lot.

"I will not be going on a camping holiday in June like in Sicily last year. This time there will be electricity and I will watch Italy's games."
