Italy midfielder Daniele de Rossi has rejected the idea madcap striker Mario Balotelli is a disruptive influence on the dressing room.

Balotelli could emerge a key figure in Warsaw tonight as Italy try to maintain their remarkable record against Germany and book a Euro 2012 final showdown with Spain.

The 21-year-old is hardly the most reliable of characters though, with his boss at Manchester City, Roberto Mancini, stating before there is little point in trying to talk with Balotelli because he simply does not listen. "Mario is not a difficult character at all," de Rossi said.
