After four years Balotelli returns to the Italian national team with a goal

Mario Balotelli took just 21 minutes to find the net for Italy on his return to the side as they beat Saudi Arabia 2-1 in a friendly on Monday.
The striker made his first appearance for the national side in nearly four years to give new coach Roberto Mancini a winning start after Italy missed out on World Cup qualification for the first time since 1958.

Balotelli broke the deadlock after 21 minutes, twisting past a defender before beating goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais with a low shot from outside the area.

Substitute Andrea Belotti extended Italy's lead in the 69th minute, scoring at the second attempt after his powerful downward header was parried by Al-Owais.
