The 26-year-old Balotelli is looking to rejuvenate his ailing career in France and got off to a good start, scoring in an open practice session
Mario Balotelli has scored his first goal for Nice in an open training session on Thursday.
The Italy international joined the Ligue 1 side on a free transfer on Wednesday as he looks to put his Liverpool nightmare behind him.
Balotelli linked up with his new team-mates on Thursday for what was his first run out for his club, and introduced himself with a well-taken goal.

Following a pass from fellow new boy Dante, who signed a three-year contract from Wolfsburg last month, Balotelli slotted the ball into the far corner.
