Mario Balotelli responds to racist fans with a stunning strike from distance

Unfortunately this wasn’t enough to affect the overall outcome of the game, but it’s still brilliant to see Balotelli score a stunning goal after suffering racist abuse from the Verona fans earlier in the game.

It’s pretty clear the footballing authorities don’t want to take a stand and dish out any serious punishments over racist behaviour, so the best way to hit back for now is to show you won’t be affected and continue to show your brilliance on the pitch.

Brescia did lose the game 2-1, but Balotelli’s push for an Italy recall is only helped by producing moments like this.
