Balotelli decided to freeze and stare into the distance after scoring his second goal in Nice's 2-2 draw with Monaco in Ligue 1 on Tuesday night.

The Italian striker netted the visitors' equaliser two minutes after half-time before putting the south coast outfit ahead thanks to a deflected strike off Andrea Raggi.

Cue the ego-mad celebration (that's what 17 goals in 21 appearances this season does for you). 

Unfortunately for the 27-year-old, Monaco's Radamel Falcao got the last laugh – the Colombia international scored a last-minute equaliser to rescue a point for the hosts.
