Balotelli shook off his injury to score a hat-trick in today’s first Krakow game between ranks, as Italy tested out the 3-5-2 system for Spain.

The Manchester City striker had limped off during Monday’s training session with a muscular problem, but was back in action today.

He bagged a hat-trick in the game between ranks of 10 v 10, cheered on by the fans in the Polish stands.
