Marchisio tells Man City's Balotelli to buck up ideas

Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has told Italy teammate Mario Balotelli to buck up his ideas.

The Manchester City striker is underfire for ignoring coach Cesare Prandelli during their draw with Croatia.

"We can all see that he's not happy when he's substituted and keeps it all in. The way I see it, the Coach could keep faith with him for the third match too, even if Mario also has to understand that sooner or later his opportunities could run out."
