Prandelli upset with comments from AC Milan striker Balotelli
Balotelli said the game was more important than meeting the Pope.
"We play games every day, every week. But you only get to meet the Pope once in your life," responded Prandelli.
"It will be a new emotion for everyone.
"I do not agree with what Balotelli said."
