Mario Balotelli, a striker for Team Italy, is expected to face off with England Saturday in a 2014 FIFA World Cup Match.
But before the 23-year-old athlete plays played his rivals on the field, he wanted to get off the field in his personal life. So, on Monday, the footballer proposed to girlfriend Fanny Neguesha with a sparkling diamond ring.
He Instagrammed a beach scene (showing where he popped the question) and a close-up of his fiancée's impressive sparkler. "She said yes," he wrote. "The most important yes in my life. That was the place of my question! I Love you and happy birthday too ! Je t'aime my WIFE ❤"
