Mario Balotelli believes an Italy recall would be a dream after he has not played for the national team since 2018. Balotelli has gone under the radar since leaving Serie A in 2019 before he played for Monza in Serie B. He moved to the Super Lig this season with Adana Demirspor and has flourished scoring five goals in 13 games. Italy failed to secure an automatic qualification spot and will now have to go through the playoffs. Balotelli will be looking forward to earning a recall for these massive games.

“I feel good after the last two and a half years. I feel ready to return to the national team. It would be a dream. I’d be leaving Turkey by foot now if I knew I got a call-up in March,” Italy forward Mario Balotelli said. “I have a very good relationship with Mancini and I have always had it. He just needs to tell me what he wants from me so that I can return to the national team. And I will. If I’ve heard it lately? Yes.”

“What he wants from me he has already said several times,” he added. “I do not have to promise anything to myself. He knows if I’m okay, why shouldn’t he call me For my characteristics, I could play with everybody. Even with Ciro [Immobile]. Would I take penalty kicks? I won’t reply because that would create controversy, but everybody knows I can take spot-kicks. Every footballer dreams of being the striker of his national team.”
