Azzurri boss Prandelli yesterday confirmed that the Udinese ace would be recalled to the set-up for February’s friendly against USA.

“I’m happy and enthusiastic,” the 34-year-old told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “I still haven’t spoken with Prandelli, but there has always been a profound respect between us.

“I’m excited by his decision and the opportunity to play alongside Balotelli – as well as the other great players in this national side.

“With my experience and the extraordinary talent of Super Mario, we’ll make a great partnership and I’d excel.

“Where do I want to be used? When you play with people who know how to play football everything is ok.”
