Lippi cools World Cup talk for Inter Milan striker Balotelli

Italy coach Marcello Lippi has cooled talk of Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli making his World Cup squad.

Over the last few days Ghana have reportedly tried to convince the Inter striker - who was born from Ghanaian parents and adopted as a baby - to play for the African nation.

Lippi said: "I will be the one to make the decision and speak out at the opportune moment, which isn't now.

"You can talk about whatever you want, but I am the one who will speak at the right time about what I want."
