Italy coach Antonio Conte admits he does not have the time to change striker Mario Balotelli
Italy live updates
Italy will face Spain in the final of the European Under-21 Championship after Fabio Borini's goal secured a 1-0 win over Holland.
The Liverpool striker's cool 79th-minute finish settled a tense affair which had looked destined for extra-time before his intervention.
– Italy manager Cesare Prandelli
Mario was very nervous. He conceded a lot of fouls and fell into the trap of reacting to provocation. He has to learn how to deal with certain situations and improve from that point of view.
We're trying to make him understand. I was planning to substitute him but I ran out of time.
– Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo
In 2014 I will stop with the national team, I think the World Cup will be the last appointment with the blue shirt.
You have to leave room for the young.
At club level I will continue on as long as I have passion and I feel important.
Otherwise I'll be the first to get me out.
AC Milan and Italy striker Mario Balotelli has posed for the first time with new girlfriend Fanny Robert Neguesha for a photoshoot in the latest edition of Italy's Vanity Fair magazine.
