Toothache sidelines Italy’s Balotelli

Mario Balotelli missed this morning’s gym session at Italy’s Coverciano training base so he could visit the dentist.

The Manchester City player was accompanied by team doctor Enrico Castellacci in order to resolve a tooth problem.

Balotelli is expected to take part in this afternoon’s session and he should feature in Friday’s international friendly against Russia in Zurich.
