Balotelli in tears after star storms off before returning to collect losers medal
I'm outta here: Mario stormed off at full-time

Five minutes: Appears to have a minor lash out at Spain defender Sergio Ramos after being beaten in the air.

12: Narrowly fails to get on the end of Andrea Pirlo's ball over the top, with Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas hurriedly clearing his lines.

26: Casillas once again thwarts the Manchester City striker, who looks poised to head home Federico Balzaretti's excellent left-wing cross, but for the Spain goalkeeper who just about turns it away.

38: Ends a promising Italy attack with a strike from 25 yards that sails high over the bar.

48: Fails in his efforts to win a penalty after falling to the ground under pressure from two Spanish defenders, having tried to jink his way past.

51: Narrowly fails to get the rebound after Antonio Di Natale's close range strike is parried by Casillas.

58: Shoots over from just outside the area after Casillas had clawed Pirlo's free-kick away.

67: Continues to show an impressive work-rate and wins three free-kicks in 10 minutes after being fouled by Alvaro Arbeloa, Pedro Rodriguez and Xabi Alonso.

90: Cuts a frustrated figure up front as Spain run riot in the closing stages and walks straight off the pitch following the full-time whistle.
