Man City striker Balotelli feeling in good form for England clash

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli feels in good form going into Italy's Euro2012 quarterfinal against England.

Balotelli was asked if he was going to demonstrate to England if there was "a stupid Balotelli or a super Balotelli" after showing his prowess with the late goal against the Irish.

He said: "I don't think Mario the person needs to demonstrate this to anyone because those who know me know exactly what I'm like.

"It was an important goal I scored against Ireland because I hadn't got on the scoresheet in the past two games.

"You said I was having a problem putting the ball in the net but I didn't have any psychological problems. There is no mental block there at all."
