Balotelli sorry for missing chances against Brazil

Rome, March 22 : AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli Friday said he was sorry for missing some scoring chances in the friendly against Brazil.

Balotelli, who scored an amazing goal in the second half Thursday to make it 2-2, was fielded alongside Pablo Daniel Osvaldo in a 4-3-1-2 during the first half, reports Xinhua.

"I would only give myself six out of 10," the January signing noted. "I missed too many scoring opportunities...."

He was then used centrally in a 4-3-3 following the half-time introductions of club teammate Stephan El Shaarawy and Torino's Alessio Cerci.

"I was more comfortable and played better in the 4-3-3," he continued.

The former Inter and Manchester City player has scored six goals in 18 appearances for Italy.
