A very determined Balotelli entered in the press room together with Cesare Prandelli on the eve of the very important game that Italy have to play against Costa Rica. Mario Balotelli feels that this could be the right moment in his career to demonstrate all his qualities.
He was asked…
What do you think about Costa Rica?
We watched a few videos, they have a good team and we have to respect them looking to give 200% on the pitch.
How do you feel?
I’m living this moment very quietly I do not feel pressure. I want to go ahead in this World Cup and score as many goals as possible. The World Cup is more important than everything so it is normal that it triggers something in you.
Do you like your new role?
The most important thing is that I play.
Did Costa Rica surprise you?
No. I knew that Costa Rica is a very strong team as well as Uruguay.
Do you think that this could be your World Cup?
I hope that this could be Italy’s World Cup. I hope to give a good support to the team. I want to win the World Cup, not to be a star.
Could you give us a judgment on the opponents in this World Cup?
I watch the matches, I like to watch soccer. Who arrives in the final match is not important, the most important thing is that we arrive there.
