Was there any doubt on who would occupy top spot? Super Mario is a phenomenal talent. If Italy is to win a trophy in the future, the Italian forward will have a big role to play. Thousands have spoken about Balotelli's antics off the pitch, and his excellence on it. At the age of 26, Mario does not have anything spectacular to show on his resume other than the brace against Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-finals. Few years back, in an interview, Mario considered himself to be the second best player on the planet after Barcelona's Leo Messy.
