Cesare Prandelli heaped praise on Mario Balotelli after Italy's 2-2 draw with Brazil.
Balotelli earned the Azzurri a draw with a superb equaliser in Geneva last night.
"I know how he really wants to be one of the best in the world but he has to remember how he can get there, and that is through team work," Prandelli told reporters. "That is what he did tonight, like a true champion."
"He has the potential to be among the best five (players) in the world but to do that he needs a lot of continuity, as he is having at the moment."
