Italy can be both the best and most frustrating team in the world to watch. They're capable of scoring goals, and being a defensive rock, and they're always a top contender to win. At times they lose irrational, cheat or play poorly, but they're still a highly respectable team. Mario Balotelli is their young, most exciting player, and with him in the team they can achieve anything, of a good or bad nature. It's still Alessandro Del Piero who graces the back of their jerseys, and the Italians are in desperate need to replace the talented forward, but perhaps Balotelli can do just that, especially if he can remove his attitude problems, that sometimes hold him back.
