Rossi happy over Italy partnership with Balotelli

Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi feels his partnership with AC Milan's Mario Balotelli showed good potential for Italy.

The pair played up front in last night's 2-2 draw with Nigeria.

"We're two good guys! We get on well, as does everyone in the squad. In all honesty, there wasn't much time to prepare for this game. We did well, Mario gave me a great assist for the goal and played very well, so I'm happy for him. His goal will come as long as he keeps working like this," said Rossi.

"I was ill with a sore throat and fever, so I only managed to train for two days during this get-together."
