Balotelli: The best evening of my life

This was the best evening of my life. I hope on Sunday to experience even stronger emotions....I've waited for this moment so long. My mum came to the match, and my father is coming to the final. I hope to celebrate goals with him. I want to score a fourth goal....Will I return to Italy in the near future? No. Everything's good in England. The fans there continue to love me even after I helped Italy to knock their national team out.

– Mario Balotelli, quoted in Gazzetta dello Sport
