Man City keeper Hart: Balotelli best penalty taker I've faced

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart says Mario Balotelli is one of the best penalty takers he's faced.

Hart could come face-to-face with Balotelli tomorrow as England take on Italy in the Euro2012 quarterfinals.

"I hate to say it, he's one of the best I've ever faced," said Hart. "He's got this mad ability where he doesn't need to look at the ball.

"I need to get inside his head and I reckon if I have to face one on Sunday, I would be able to stop him."
