Inter Milan whiz Balotelli strikes twice in Coppa

Inter Milan superkid Mario Balotelli struck twice as they saw off Juventus 3-2 in a fiery Coppa Italia quarterfinal clash last night.

"I had already seen him play against the Juve Primavera youth team and liked him then. He has a sense of where the goal is and moves very well," admitted Juve coach Claudio Ranieri, who said he would speak to Mauro Camoranesi after the World Cup winner was sent-off for a violent challenge on the 17 year-old.

Ranieri added: "I liked the way Camoranesi played, but he let the nerves get to him. I'll give him a talking to."

Juventus' best player on the night was Alessandro Del Piero, who scored one goal and had a hand in every move.

"I know that Alessandro wants to go back into the Nazionale and I think he deserves a call because he is having a great season."
