VIDEO: Zhang does 'a Balotelli'!

The Italy international’s famous celebration from Euro 2012 was recreated by Chinese attacker Chiming Zhang at the weekend

Mario Balotelli has had little reason to cheer so far in 2014-15, but that has not stopped Chongqing Lifan attacker Chiming Zhang from recreating the striker’s iconic ‘Superman-celebration’ from Italy’s Euro 2012 semi-final win over Germany in his side’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Guangzhou Evergrande on Saturday.

The 26-year-old found the net around with a calm finish the hour mark after being set up by Jaja and celebrated by taking off his jersey, before striking a pose while flexing his muscles, much to the delight of the home fans.

However, Zhang’s goal eventually counted for nothing as Chongqing failed to add a second in the remainder of the game, leaving them behind empty handed after 90 minutes.

This weekend’s defeat leaves the Balotelli impersonator and his team-mates in 15th place in the table with zero points from two games.
