The latest quote from Camp Balotelli, which if that BBC documentary is anything to go by, means he won't be available for the Irish game due to being incarcerated.
Mario Balotelli: "If someone chucked a banana at me in the street I'd end up in prison, because I'd kill them."

And the latest most likely made up story about Super Mario
Smitten Balotelli -- who was dating stunning model Raffaella Fico, 24, at the time -- saw Thorne as she drove home in her Renault Clio from her job at The Old Rectory Hotel.
He followed her in his new black BMW Z9 before knocking on her front door at around 8:00pm local time. Thorne -- still in her work uniform and name tag -- was about to send him packing when her uncle Steve McCauley, 50, came bounding out.
She said, "We were all in shock. It was very surreal. It's not every day that a millionaire footballer knocks on your door. We went into the living room, and he sat down on the sofa with my uncle to talk about football. But every now and then, Mario would turn to me and ask again if I would go out on a date with him. He asked me three times, and each time I politely said no to him. I knew he had a girlfriend, and I have no interest in going out with a footballer."
