Mario Balotelli as a child is certainly an odd image to wrap your head around. The surly Italian striker is frequently the biggest and strongest player on the pitch, but his younger brother Enoch has taken to Instagram to remind us of a time when Super Mario was merely a lad. 

While Mario is now 23, his inner child is still clearly going strong. At least that's how we're going to interpret his world-renowned sense of humour.

Balotelli and Italy take on Uruguay in a pivotal World Cup Group D clash Tuesday at 5 p.m. GMT.
