You wouldn’t expect anything else from Super Mario.

AC MILAN HOSTED Roma in Serie A tonight with an entertaining 90 minutes of football ending in a 2-2 draw.

Striker Mattia Destro put the visitors ahead on 13 minutes before defender Christian Zapata equalised for the Rossoneri with a header after a half hour.

Dutch international Kevin Strootman then scored from the spot for Roma when Gervinho was fouled by substitute goalkeeper Gabriel.

With 13 minutes on the clock, however, Sulley Muntari struck to level up.

Mario Balotelli didn’t get on the scoresheet as he wasted a late chance but his novel choice of footwear did catch the eye.

The white and black boots feature several newspaper headlines about him including “Why Always Me?”, “Super Mario” and “Bye Bye Germania”.

We can’t say we’re surprised considering some of his antics in the past.
