Should Italy advance to the knockout stages of the World Cup, they'll do so without star man Mario Balotelli, who picked up his second yellow card of the group stages in the most Balotelli way possible.

Balotelli went high to win a ball but instead wound up with his knee in the back of Alvaro Pereira's head.
