Mario Balotelli is ready to round off his season in style by leading Italy to the European Championship title.

The Manchester City striker is still on a high after playing his part in securing the Blues' first title crown in 44 years.

Balotelli's antics on and off the pitch in recent months had left a question mark as to whether he would be included in Cesare Prandelli's final squad.

But the 21-year-old insists he never had any doubt that he would get the call and is now ready to let his goals do the talking at the tournament.

Italy face reigning champions Spain in their opening game on 10th June and are 17.00 to win 2-1. A 2-2 draw can be backed at 19.00, while a clean sheet for the Italians is at 4.00.

Balotelli says: "I am young and it is normal that I make mistakes. But with regards to the psychological aspect, I don't pay attention because I am fed up with what everyone says.

"I just try to improve tactically, mature and score always. I never thought I would lose my place in the national team. I have always been in touch with the national coach.

"This tournament could be the opportunity of my life. But I don't feel an added responsibility. Prandelli, just like Roberto Mancini, has given me a lot of confidence and waited for me and I cannot wait to repay that trust.

"I don't think I will ever leave him down to ten men. I want to be a winner and give the fans joy."
