On a plate: Balotelli nods home to put Italy 1-0 up
'These two goals are really important,' he said. 'The first one was a really amazing pass from Antonio Cassano and then it was easy.
'The second one was a great pass from Montolivo, normally I shoot in the other corner but
I went for the near post.'
Italy have already drawn once with Spain at the start of the tournament.
