Mario Balotelli proposed to his Belgian girlfriend Fanny N,guesham before the World Cup starts.
"She said yes," the Italy striker posted on Instagram. "The most important yes in my life."
"That was the place of my question! I Love you and happy birthday too!" Balotelli added, next to a picture of a romantic beach setting.
At training, Italy's squad applauded Balotelli and he responded with a wave of his hand and a wide smile. Then teammates Antonio Candreva, Ciro Immobile and Ignazio Abate went over to offer congratulatory hugs.
"He must have gone through a lot of emotions last night," teammate Claudio Marchisio said. "But now we all need to focus on the World Cup."
