Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says he's happy with Mario Balotelli in training ahead of their Euros semifinal.

Balotelli has stuttered during the tournament and Prandelli was asked how he deals with the Manchester City striker.

"I have no difficulties communicating with him, but curiosity of trying to understand a 20-year-old lad. In terms of behaviour and mentality, these are radical changes he's going through, so I'm curious to know what emotions he has and what he thinks he needs to do in order to become a champion."
