Video: Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli manages to change into the wrong Italy kit at half-time
Out with the new and in with the old
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is not unacquainted with wardrobe malfunctions (who could forget his bib antics), but this moment from Italy’s match against Uruguay is particularly puzzling.
Having played the first half in the correct attire, Balotelli emerged for the second period wearing Italy’s old kit instead of the new one he had been wearing.
The video shows Balotelli swapping his shirt again after receiving a booking early in the second half. The replay of the foul shows Mario wearing the previous Italy shirt at that time! But having swiftly picked up a yellow card and a white collar, the zany striker was adequately dressed and raring for action once again.
