Mario Balotelli is a perfect footballer – at least with his penalty kicks. The Italian forward has scored all his 21 penalty kicks in gameplay during his time as a professional footballer.
Balotelli’s tally increases to 26 out of 26 if penalty shoot-outs are included. The controversial player has scored six penalties for Inter Milan, nine for Manchester City, seven for AC Milan and four for his country Italy.
The AC Milan striker who scored a last minute penalty to give his side a point after Sulley Muntari sparked a comeback over the weekend said of his 100% record:
“It’s a game of wits with the opposition’s keeper and I know how to control my emotions.”
