Mario Balotelli Backheel Goal Fail

Silly Mario Balotelli. In Manchester City‘s pre-season friendly (you know, those matches that top tier European clubs play in the U.S. to make fistfuls of bank) against the Los Angeles Galaxy, the young Italian striker tried to score a backheel goal after blowing past the MLS defenders. It was an impressive move, really. Except… except that Balotelli was off by a couple of feet. This act of arrogance (because, really, what else is it other than perhaps disdain for the inferior team/league?) forced Man City boss Roberto Mancini to bench his star player. Balotelli, of course, threw a fit.
