Mario Balotelli Asks EA Sports To Add His Instagram Selfie Celebration To FIFA

Mario Balotelli Asks EA Sports To Add His Instagram Selfie Celebration To FIFA

Mario Balotelli is a man for iconic goal celebrations.

We'll never forget his "Why always me?" undershirt when he opened the scoring in Manchester City's memorable 6-1 demolition of rivals United at Old Trafford, as well as Balo hulking up in Italy's Euro 2012 semi-final defeat of Germany.

But he went for something completely different after scoring a bicycle kick for Marseille against Saint-Etienne last night.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker grabbed his iPhone off the cameraman and recorded a video for his Instagram story, with several of his teammates joining in.

Balotelli has well and truly taken the internet by storm with his antics and he's now putting pressure on EA Sports to add the celebration on FIFA by tagging them on his Instagram post.

EA Sports Have Made Plenty Of New Additions To FIFA 21

We're well in favour of Balo's new goal celebration being included in FIFA - just imagine the pure scenes of getting your player to whip out his phone and take a selfie when you've just bagged a last-gasp rebound winner? Incredible shithousery.

Paul Pogba's 'Billy dance' is on the game, as is Jesse Lingard's trademark 'JLingz' celebration but FIFA 19 is in need of something a little different celebration-wise and Balotelli might just have provided it. Make it happen, EA.

It should be noted, however, that 'Balo' was following in the footsteps of another Italian with his celebration.

Francesco Totti was the first man to grab his iPhone and take a picture after scoring a goal, having done so following his glorious acrobatic volleyed equaliser in the Rome derby back in 2015.
