ROME - Perhaps Mario Balotellis struggles with Liverpool will have a positive effect on his return to Italys squad. http://www.officialnflbillsgear.com/richie-incognito-jersey/ .Thats what Azzurri coach Antonio Conte is hoping for after giving Balotelli a
surprising call-up for a key European Championship qualifier against Croatia on
Sunday.Its the first time Conte has included Balotelli since taking over from
Cesare Prandelli after Italys first-round elimination from the World Cup.Maybe
its even better that Balotelli is coming in during a rough period, Conte said
Monday as Italy began training in Florence. I think hell dedicate himself to the
national team.Since transferring from AC Milan, Balotelli has scored only two
goals in 14 appearances for Liverpool — and none in the Premier League.Glad to
be back on the National Team and proud to represent my country, Balotelli wrote
on Facebook.Without Balotelli, Ciro Immobile and Simone Zaza have taken over as
the starters in attack under Contes preferred 3-5-2 formation. It remains to be
seen if Balotelli will be used as a bench option or possibly replace Zaza.All
players are equal. Balotelli, like everyone else, could play if hes in form but
he could also end up on the bench or even in the tribune, Conte said. Balotelli
has a lot of experience with the national team, having played a World Cup and a
European Championship. Thats important but its not enough. Hes going to have to
show me he can adapt to my type of football.Others have already shown that.
Immobile, Zaza, (Graziano) Pelle and (Sebastian) Giovinco start with an
advantage, Conte added. If over the course of a week Balotelli shows me hes
reached the level of the others then he could pass in front of them.While Italy
has won all four of its matches under Conte, the Azzurri struggled somewhat in
their last two games, a 2-1 win over Azerbaijan and a 1-0 victory over Malta.Im
looking forward to knowing (Balotelli). Its good to have competition, Zaza said.
It could help the squad. I knew sooner or later he would be called up. Hes one
of the best Italian forwards.Italy and Croatia are level at the top of Group H
with nine points each. Two days after Sundays match at the San Siro — where
Balotelli formerly played for both Inter and AC Milan — Italy hosts Albania in
Genoa for a friendly.Conte said speculation that he had called up Balotelli
merely to meet sponsor demands was nonsense.I dont exclude anyone, said the
coach who guided Juventus to the last three Serie A titles. Balotelli is playing
as a starter for Liverpool. Im forced to call up many players who are not
starters for their clubs.Balotelli has scored 13 goals in 33 appearances for
Italy, and was instrumental in the Azzurris run to the final of Euro 2012. But
after scoring in Italys opening win over England at the World Cup, both he and
the rest of Prandellis attack struggled in the next two matches against Costa
Rica and Uruguay.Balotelli was the focus of a big portion of the blame for
Italys early exit from the tournament in Brazil.Four months ago when he scored
against England, you hailed Balotelli as Italys national treasure, Conte said.
Four months later, hes being (attacked). I think thats part of the problem. Hes
just a normal player.Conte deflected questions over reports in English tabloids
focusing on Balotellis late-night partying habits.Im going to evaluate Balotelli
for what he does from here on, Conte said. You know my rules and how severe I
am. Im not going to waver on that.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at

event. Siddikur, who shot a bogey-free first round to share the lead with five
others, eagled the par-5 first hole before bogeying twice and rebounding with
six birdies. http://www.officialnflbillsgear.com/jerry-hughes-jersey/ . “The fact that he was willing to do the deal the way we wanted it to be done
showed that he wanted me to be a part of something great," Lowry said, noting
that Ujiri willingness to sign off on the proposal that both Lowry and his agent
presented to the GM was the final straw that convinced him to return.OWINGS
MILLS, Md. - The Baltimore Ravens and tight end Dennis Pitta reached agreement
on a five-year contract Friday. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun,
the deal is worth $32 million. Pitta, Baltimores fourth-round pick in 2010, was
set to become an unrestricted free agent when free agency starts March 11. "I
could not be more excited to remain a Baltimore Raven," Pitta said in a
statement. "There is no better organization or fan base in sports. To be given
the opportunity to continue my career here is incredible. This organization
drafted me and has always stood by me — especially during my difficult recovery
last season. And for that, I am extremely grateful." Pitta has become a
favourite option of quarterback Joe Flacco in recent seasons. He missed most of
2013 while recovering from a dislocated and fractured hip, but he returned to
catch 20 passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in the final four games. He had 61
catches for 669 yards and seven touchdowns during the 2012 regular season and
then added 14 catches for 163 yards and three touchdowns in the playoffs in
helping the Ravens win the Super Bowl. "Dennis creates a number of mismatch
problems for defences," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said. http://www.officialnflbillsgear.com/chris-gragg-jersey/. . "He makes it tough on them. And because of that, he really helps out our wide
receivers. "Opponents have to always pay attention to where he lines up and
where his routes take him. Dennis is also a big target with very good hands, and
his presence in the red zone is very important to us." Without Pitta for most of
2013, Baltimore finished just 18th in passing offence. "It was obvious when
Dennis was out last year that we really missed him," Ravens coach John Harbaugh
said. "We all admire how he fought back from the hip injury and helped us down
the stretch. Having Dennis as a part of the Ravens now and in the future is
exciting news for us. "Dennis has a large catch radius and can snatch the ball
in traffic. Not only is he a reliable player, but he is an outstanding person as
well. Having a weapon like Dennis makes everyone on our offence better." The
deal came a day after the Ravens terminated the contracts of three-time Pro Bowl
fullback Vonta Leach and six-year linebacker Jameel McClain. Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
