13. Mario Balotelli
Moment of the Season - His unstoppable goal past Manuel Neuer against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final that sent Italy on their way to an unexpected victory and secured them a place in the final against Spain.
Editor's view - "Mad, bad and rarely anything but box-office, Mario Balotelli’s footballing contribution to Manchester City’s title success was largely overlooked by some observers. The maverick Italian striker was prolific in the first half of a campaign in which he more than compensated for the absence of Carlos Tevez, who was in self-imposed exile and he also enjoyed a reputation-enhancing European Championship in which he scored three times, including a masterful brace in the semi-final win over Germany." - Sam Lyon - Chief editor of Goal.com UK
