Football bad boy Mario Balotelli has asked for a special reward if his team helps England stay in the World Cup – a kiss from England’s Queen.
The flamboyant star made the proposal on his Twitter account just minutes after the Three Lions crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Uruguay.
Mario, who scored against England as Italy won the first Group D game 2-1, said he wanted to receive the royal reward if his side win their game tomorrow.
He tweeted: “If we beat Costa Rica I want a kiss, obviously on the cheek, from the UK Queen”.
The cheeky comment went viral and was soon re-tweeted a staggering 85,000 times – with thousands of people responding.
Belgium skipper and former team mate Vincent Kompany was among those who replied to the colourful star, saying:
“Wouldn’t even surprise me.
Derek Wilson said: “If you do we will knight you to a Sir as well”
Duncan Moris replied: “Got to beat Costa Rica and Italy for that, Mario. And by a clear 2 goals each.”
The former Manchester City striker, who is rumoured to be joining Arsenal in the summer, was referring to England now needing other results to go their way to ensure they stay in the competition.
