You may not want to be around Italy's Mario Balotelli
he plays with fireworks
or has a dart
in his hand, but watching him juggle a soccer ball -- as Italy prepares for its World
Cup opener on Saturday -- is pure pleasure.
During one of Italy’s training sessions in Brazil, the Azzurri were working on their touch, either by juggling solo or with a teammate.
Balotelli’s partner easily bounced the ball with his shoulder and promptly returned it to Balotelli, who then caught it in between his legs and swung it creatively around to resume juggling with
his feet. And it looks so easy as he does it.
