Why always Balotelli?

Mario Balotelli is a bit of a character, there's no doubting that, and he showed his funny side again yesterday when he posted a picture to his Facebook of the entire Italy squad in the Panini World Cup sticker album starring only himself.

It's not clear whether he himself did all the handiwork for real, or perhaps one of his many fans used photoshop, but he accompanied it with a phrase that has become almost synonymous with him, "why always me?", after he celebrated a goal while playing for Manchester City by lifting his jersey to reveal a t-shirt with that question emblazoned upon it.

We're not sure how his Italy team-mates would feel about that, nor are we confident that Mario is that good a goalkeeper, but as the old song goes, we all dream of a team of Gary Breens Mario Balotellis...
