AC Milan club mates make 'pair beyond compare' says coach

Soccer: Balotelli, El Shaarawy to take field against Dutch

Rome, February 5 - Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli said Tuesday that he would be fielding Mario Balotelli together with his 20-year-old AC Milan club mate, Stephan El Shaarawy, in Wednesday's friendly match against the Netherlands. The pair played well together when they partnered each other in a 2-1 friendly defeat to France in November. "They make a pair beyond compare," said Prandelli. Both players have Mohawk hairstyles and Prandelli said he would have a 'double Mohawk' if he won the World Cup with them. El Shaarawy has scored 15 goals for Milan this season. Balotelli made an instant impact at Milan after moving from English champions Manchester City last week, scoring the double that earned his new side a 2-1 win over Udinese on Sunday. Balotelli moved for a transfer fee of over 20 million euros after two and a half years in England in which he hit the headlines for disciplinary issues and some bizarre off-field incidents and much as for his goals.
