The Italian International Mario Balotelli said on Thursday night after the qualification into the European Championship final, that this is the most beautiful evening of his life and he was confident before the clash with Spain in Kiev, holder of the World and European trophy.
“I waited so long this moment. I have dedicated my goals to my mother who came to the stadium just for me. There were here and my best friends and it mattered to me. Cassano was brilliant, only he can do what he did. If I will return to Italy? Now, I don’t think about it, playing in England and currently remain there. I think this is the most beautiful night of my life, but hopefully in the final to play even better and to overcome. Spain? We need to be calmly, to not be afraid, and that because we have already given a goal to them and we are strong.” said Balotelli.
Italy defeated Germany on Thursday in Warsaw 2-1 (2-0), in their Euro 2012 semifinals in Poland and Ukraine, and qualified for the final act of the competition, where they will face the holder of the World and European trophy, Spain.
Winners’ goals were scored by Balotelli ’20 and ’36. Mesut Ozil scored for Germany in the injury time from penalty kick, but it was too late to change the fate of the game.
