Balotelli scores first Brescia goal

Mario Balotelli and Romulo scored their first goals in a Brescia jersey during a 3-2 friendly victory over Frosinone.

The Rondinelle took advantage of the break for international duty to have a practice run against Serie B side Frosinone.

Balotelli, who has to complete the four-match ban left over from Ligue 1 before he makes his Serie A debut for Brescia, was on target for the first time in this friendly.

He rose above the crowd to nod in a Romulo corner after 26 minutes.

Former Genoa and Lazio winger Romulo was also involved in the second goal, which he scored himself.

Frosinone got back into it after the restart, Marcello Trotta firing in during a goalmouth scramble, swiftly followed by Dimitri Bisoli finding the net to restore Brescia’s advantage.

Mattia Vitale set up a nervy finish to the thriller.

There were approximately 2,000 people in attendance for the match.
