Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is convinced 2014 will be a big year for AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

Prandelli believes Balotelli will dominate the Brazil World Cup.

"In media terms, it will be Balotelli's World Cup, but he needs to do extraordinary things now," said Prandelli.

"It will also be the World Cup of Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, as these are among the three best players in the world."
