Mario Balotelli dedicates winning goal to rapper Drake
Always unpredictable, Italian soccer star Mario Balotelli dedicated his game-winning goal in Italy's 2-1 win over Mexico to a Canadian rapper.
Italian national team striker Mario Balotelli is a big hip-hop fan. When Drake was on tour in England last year, Balotelli invited the rapper to a Manchester City game.
Sunday, after Balotelli scored the game-winning goal over Mexico in the Confederations Cup, he tweeted some love to Drake:
this gol is for my bro @Drake !!! STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM NOW WE HERE!!— Mario balotelli (@FinallyMario) June 16, 2013
