That's what Italy striker Balotelli’s fiance Fanny Neguesha predicted hours before Sunday's World Cup match against England; she was nearly right with her man scoring once and Italy winning 2-1
Italy striker Mario Balotelli's fiancé Fanny Neguesha would do well as an astrologer. According to a report in a British tabloid, hours before Italy took on England in their FIFA World Cup Group D encounter in Manaus on Sunday, Neguesha had predicted victory for the Azzurri.

Neguesha (23) told the Daily Star that Italy would not just sneak a win but that her man would trouble the English defence and end up as the hero of the match too.
During a boat trip near Manaus, a good eight hours before the match, Neguesha said: "I think it will be close, but Italy will win 3-2. Mario will score a hat-trick. He is feeling good and everyone in the team is confident. He always has my support but today is very special."
The Belgian hottie was nearly perfect in her prediction. Italy won 2-1 with Balotelli consistently worrying the English defence and eventually scoring the winner.
After Daniel Sturridge cancelled out Italian Claudio Marchisio's strike, Balotelli headed in the winner in the second half and was adjudged Man of the Match too.
