Mario Balotelli never fails to surprise, and his latest stunt could well be his most outrageous of them all - after tweeting that he wants a kiss... from the Queen of England!

England’s second consecutive Group B defeat means that Roy Hodgson’s men must now rely on other results to stand any chance of progressing out of the group stage.

The Three Lions succumbed 2-1 to Uruguay – with Luis Suarez grabbing a brace upon his return to the national starting XI – following their opening game loss to Italy, which finished with the same scoreline.

England must now hope that Italy beat Costa Rica on Friday and then Uruguay on June 24, with Hodgson’s side needing to beat Costa Rica in their final group game to sneak through on goal difference.

And Balotelli, who spent three years in England with Manchester City, has taken it upon himself to have a little dig at England by cheekily suggesting that he should receive a kiss – on the cheek – from Her Majesty should he lead the Azzurri to victory over Costa Rica.
