Italy star Mario Balotelli threatened to let his wild side boil over once again during the first-half of his side’s Euro 2012 match against Spain.

After having a free-kick given against him, he launched into this assault on the pitch. Better the pitch than an opponent, we suppose.

He was booked shortly afterwards for a late tackle.
