The Italian federation's president, Giancarlo Abete, said he believes Balotelli will recover from his disappointing display against Spain. "Balotelli made his contribution but he must try to understand the reality of playing in a major international competition in which there is no forgiveness," Abete told Italy's Radio Anch'io Sport. "He nevertheless put the Spanish defence under pressure. Balotelli will not allow himself to be disheartened."

REALLY. REALLY.

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER, UEFA. PEOPLE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO AVOID TOURNAMENTS BECAUSE THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT BEING HARRASSED IN THE STREETS. PLAYING FOOTBALL DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU CAN BE CALLED A MONKEY ON THE PITCH (or, well, ANYWHERE ELSE), AND HAVE IT SEEN AS SOMETHING YOU HAD COMING.

NO I WILL NOT TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK. THOUGH MY FOOTBALL TAG SEEMS ABSURDLY INAPPROPRIATE, GIVEN.
