Video: Mario Balotelli scores two goals for Man City’s U21s v Blackburn
Mario Balotelli was in the news for footballing reasons earlier in the week when the Italian centre-forward made a surprise appearance for Manchester City’s Under-21s against Blackburn on Monday.
City won the match convincingly beating Rovers 4-0 at Platt Lane, and 22-year-old Balotelli was the star performer for the Citizens.
Super Mario curler a right footer just past the half hour to put Man City in front following a mistake in the Blackburn backline, and then Balotelli linked up with Denis Suarez to double the lead.
After City had claimed a third, Balotelli then won a penalty in the Blackburn box which Suarez dispatched to kill the contest.
