Poll of the day: Will Balotelli be mad, sad, bad or glad v England?

Ahead of the quarter-final clash between the Three Lions and Italy on Sunday we ask Goal.com readers what mood the Man City man will be in come the final whistle

When England meet Italy in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012, it will be the biggest match of a few players' careers, especially for their country. Regardless of who wins, there is likely to be drama, and one man who is unrivalled in his unpredicatable nature is Mario Balotelli.

The question we want to ask our Goal.com readers is what sort of mood the eccentric Italian will be in. We've narrowed it down to just a few choices of how 'Super Mario' will react against Premier League team-mates and rivals.

Will he be 'Mad Mario', kicking lumps out of the turf (or his opponents), displaying the short fuse that has often threatened to derail his short career? Could he be wiping away the tears after seeing a spot-kick saved by club team-mate Joe Hart?

Will 'Bad Balotelli' rear his head with inaccurate shooting and his 'less is definitely more' attitude that has frustrated Italians and Manchester City fans alike?

Or, finally, will we see 'Glad Mario' jumping with joy and embracing his team-mates after scoring the winning goal that takes the Italians into a semi-final with Germany?
