Mario Balotelli with match-winning brace in his Milan debut, silently asks ‘Can you dig it?’

After scoring just once in 14 Premier League appearances for Man City this season, Mario Balotelli scored both of Milan's goals in his debut against Udinese. Balotelli and Stephan El Shaarawy (who form Milan's mohawk triumvirate with M'baye Niang) picked up where they left off with the Italian national team and both played a part in each of Milan's goals for the 2-1 win.

El Shaarawy earned a questionable penalty during injury time and Balotelli slotted in the ensuing spot kick to retain his perfect record there. Though the celebration that followed wasn't exactly on the same level as the shirtless flex he did at Euro 2012, it was the perfect punctuation to his defiant press conference earlier in the week.
