Mario Balotelli proposes to girlfriend

Leonardo Bertozzi analyzes the Azzurri's attacking options and their problem in defence.

MANGARATIBA, Brazil -- Mario Balotelli is taking care of some personal business before the World Cup starts.

The Italy forward indicated overnight that he proposed to his Belgian girlfriend Fanny Neguesha.

After midnight local time, Balotelli posted on Instagram, "She said yes.. The most important yes in my life."

Next to a picture of a romantic beach setting, Balotelli added, "That was the place of my question! I Love you and happy birthday too!"

Balotelli also posted a picture of a diamond ring presumably on Neguesha's hand.

The announcement was linked to Balotelli's official Twitter account.

Earlier this year, Balotelli acknowledged he has a daughter, Pia, from a previous relationship with Raffaella Fico.

Coach Cesare Prandelli has opened Italy's training base in Brazil to wives and girlfriends. The Azzurri face England on Saturday.
