Last night’s World Cup qualifier between Italy and Czech Republic finished in a pretty drab (fun fact: Italy didn’t manage a single shot on target) goalless stalemate, but not before Mario Balotelli got himself sent-off 18 minutes from time after picking up two yellow cards in the space of four minutes.

Having been booked for buffeting over Michael Kadlec, Balotelli was almost immediately shown his second yellow of the evening for an innocuous-looking tangle with Theodor Gebre Selassie in the Czech box – with both “offences” barely worthy of a caution between them.

Mario, as is his wont, then took out him frustration by pummeling several shades of scheisse out of the tunnel on his way back to the dressing room…

Thanks to the point accrued, Italy are now four points clear of Bulgaria at the top of Group B.

    at least he didn’t do it the referee or the player, i thought he reacted quite well (for Balotelli)up to that point.

  2. Jesus says:

    That was unfair to Mario and the tunnel..

  3. Fat Nakago says:

    The Czech’s strategy for this match almost worked like a charm:

    1. Play like Hard Czech Bastards! czech!

    2. Wind up Balotelli and get him tossed! double czech!!

    And their scheme would have worked too if wasn’t for those darned kids Gianluigi Buffon.

  4. Dont Worry says:

    Nothing makes me more happy than seeing this prick get sent off. The way everyones got behind him for being a “lad” just annoyed me. People still bag out Ronaldo when this mong gets constant worship.
