Scott Parker knows that Mario Balotelli is a danger to England when they faec Italy on Sunday
Tottenham star Scott Parker has warned his team-mates about the danger of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli ahead of England’s Euro 2012 quarter final against Italy.
The pair clashed when the two sides met at the Etihad Stadium last season with the Italian stamping on the Englishman.
“He’s been in the Premier League for a year now [sic] and we’ve all seen how brilliant he can be and what he can bring. He’s a very good player and someone we are going to have to keep our eye on,” said Parker.
“We now look forward to the quarter-final against Italy. We get an extra day, which is key for us, we’ll go and prepare for that game like we’ve prepared for all the others, and hopefully we can get the result.”
James Milner, Joleon Lescott and Joe Hart will also know what to expect from their Citizens team-mate.
