10-0! Mario Balotelli makes an immediate impact at AC Milan

Striker features in friendly match

Just hours after completing his £19m move from Manchester City, Mario Balotelli was in amongst the goals as AC Milan thrashed Darfo Boario 10-0.

Balotelli came on as a substitute in the friendly with AC Milan already 5-0 up.

It took the Italian just 12 minutes to net his first goal for the Rossoneri, rounding the keeper before slotting home.

The controversial striker also set up a further two goals, both for strike partner Stephan El Shaarawy, as Milan romped to a convincing 10-0 win over their opponents who play in Italy's equivalent of the Blue Square Bet Conference.
