L’Italy she qualified for the semi-final of the European Championships by beating Belgium in the quarter-finals. An important success for the national team of Mancini which has once again proved its test of strength. Everyone is cheering the Azzurri protagonists of an extraordinary journey to the sound of records. However, someone had something to say to this Italy that until a few days ago was at the center of criticism for the line dictated by the Federation due to the gesture of kneel down as a sign of closeness to the movement Black Lives Matter.
Mario Balotelli, through the stories of Instagram and answering the questions of his followers, has not digested the attitude of the national team to choose to kneel only for “solidarity” towards opponents. The now well-known symbol of the fight against racism coined by the Black Lives Matter movement, has found the support of several national teams participating in these Europeans, but not that of the Azzurri: “Italy will fight racism with other gestures”. The former striker of the Italian national team was clear: “I would have made them all kneel down”.
Balotelli almost wanted to send a message to Italy that in the 2012 European championship had enjoyed the talent and class of the Brescia forward who, however, today, at 30 years old, finds himself released after the dull season lived in the ranks of Monza in Serie B. Balotelli, however, at the same time also wanted to congratulate the Azzurri for the extraordinary path in the continental tournament.
“No, Italy is doing very well even without me” Balotelli wrote answering the question of one of his followers. SuperMario has shown that he has never forgotten the thrill of wearing the blue shirt of Italy and to those who asked him on social networks if he could return to the national team in view of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Balo replied crossing your fingers.
