Lorenzo Insigne got Mario Balotelli good by scaring the shit out of him in his hotel room while away with Italy.
The Nice striker has been recently been brought back into the Azzurri fold by Roberto Mancini, the man he has worked with at Inter Milan and Manchester City.
But he was given the fright of his life when Insigne produced the classic ‘hide in the curtains’ prank on him.
With Balotelli coming back into the room and in his own little world, the Napoli man jumped out on the former Liverpool , scaring him shitless and leading to him nearly dropping his phone in panic before he saw the funny side.
The whole thing was caught and camera by a teammate and it’s just brilliant. Balotelli and Insigne have quite the bromance, with the former mocking his height on his Instagram today.

Mancini and all those involved with the national team will be hoping that their relationship transfers onto the pitch, starting with Friday’s UEFA Nations League game against Poland.
After that, Mancini’s men travel to Portugal on Monday in their second game of the newly introduced competition.
Balotelli marked his return in May by scoring his 14th goal for his country against Saudi Arabia in Mancini’s first game in charge.
It seems as though Mancini will play 4-3-3 for the visit of Poland, with Balotelli leading the line and Insigne playing on the left of a front three.
