When: 7/24/2011

During Manchester City's US tour in the summer of 2011, Balotelli gave new meaning to the phrase, "he scores goals when he wants to." Balotelli, who had only been on the pitch a few minutes, looked like he had a clear shot on goal from just a few yards out. But this is Mario Balotelli we're talking about. He inexplicably turned his back to goal and attempted to back heel the ball into the net instead of taking the sure shot. Mario missed horribly and manager Roberto Mancini promptly removed him from the match. Teammates looked at him in confusion and LA Galaxy fans serenaded him with a chorus of boos as he walked off the pitch. Way to expand the global game, chief.
