Mario Balotelli gives Gigi Buffon a workout in training

Dirty Tackle

Before Brazil gave Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon a difficult time in their 4-2 win on Saturday, teammate Mario Balotelli tested him in training. Balotelli went one-v-one against Buffon with a lengthy bit of fancy footwork that had the keeper crawling on the ground to try and keep Mario at bay. But 35-year-old Buffon stuck with the 22-year-old striker and eventually knocked the ball away from him to show that experience beats youth. Except when that youth belongs to Neymar.
