Balotelli's royal demand

Italy striker Mario Balotelli joked on Thursday that if his side rescue England's chances of qualification by beating Costa Rica, he expects a kiss from Queen Elizabeth II. "If we beat Costa Rica I want a kiss, obviously on the cheek, from the UK Queen," Balotelli wrote in a tweet to his 2.36 million Twitter followers, moments after the final whistle in the England-Uruguay game. There will however be no kiss for Mario as the Azzuri went down to Costa Rica 1-0 in the latest of a series of World Cup shocks.
