Ex-City striker has a confrontation with Oranje fans.
Watch this hilarious video of Italy striker Mario Balotelli and some Dutch fans during Wednesday night’s friendly in Amsterdam.
A packed Amsterdam Arena turned up to watch Holland host Italy with all eyes as ever on the mercurial Mario Balotelli.
The first chance fell to the Dutch, but the young-at-heart Gianluigi Buffon pulled off an instinctive save to deny Adam Maher.
The Netherlands did take the lead just past the half hour mark, Jeremain Lens showing unbelievable composure in the box and applied a finish to match.
This time Buffon had no chance.

Sunderland vs Arsenal tickets are on sale from £23 for this Saturday’s match at the Stadium of Light.
And now for something completely different. Granted the idea of Mario Balotelli lashing out on a football pitch is hardly revolutionary, but have you ever seen the Italian trouble-maker goaded by a pair of astronauts sitting in row A?
Well you have now! Here it is in slo-mo in case you missed it.
Life isn’t all about Mario’s antics, unfortunately there was the rest of the game to get back to, but at least Italy provided some late drama – Marco Verratti poking in a 91st minute equaliser.
It finished 1-1; a solid game but hardly out of this world!
