The Azzurri began their campaign with a point as a second-half penalty from Jorginho secured a 1-1 draw against the Polish.

Balotelli played his first competitive game for Italy since returning from his four-year absence, but he did not have the best of the games.

However, Mancini, who worked with Balotelli at Manchester City, claims the striker's fitness levels are an issue.

"Mario needs to play, he is an experienced player on the international stage," Mancini told Rai Sport.
 
"But his fitness levels are an issue right now. Only the best condition is needed."
 
 
Do you think Balotelli is the right striker to lead Italy forward? Let us know in the comment section below.
