Prandelli admits Man City striker Balotelli now has big Italy chance

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli admits they could be relying heavily on Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli at next year's Euros.

With Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi and AC Milan's Antonio Cassano both sidelined for six months, Balotelli can lay down a marker this week.

Prandelli said: "Balotelli has an opportunity to show his worth, but I don't want to place too much responsibility on him. All of the attackers that we have can play together."
