Overview

Mario Balotelli's Goal Celebration refers to a memorable goal ceremony staged by Italian-Ghanaian football player Mario Balotelli in the UEFA Euro 2012 semifinals match between Italy and Germany in June 28, 2012.

Background

In the 35th minute of the match, Riccardo Montolivo passed the ball to Mario Balotelli, which he then ran to the penalty box and shot a goal. This was Balotelli's second goal of the match. By celebrating his second goal, he took off his shirt and stood with an angry facial expression. Photos featuring his pose became a part of exploitable photoshop parody images.
