Inter Milan striker Balotelli maintains World Cup hopes

Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli still has hopes of making Italy's World Cup squad.

The 19-year-old has already netted six goals this campaign from 21 matches, and explained why he does not celebrate after scoring.

"Of course I am thinking about the Italian jersey, just like every other player," he said. "The problem should revolve around me scoring or not scoring, not about whether I celebrate or not.

"I may have a fight with a team-mate, a friend, an adversary or a fan, but this all happens after the match has finished."
