Super Mario wants a smooch from Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second.

But only if Italy win.

The outspoken Italian striker made a joke on Twitter suggesting that if he and his well-placed Italian team defeat Costa Rica to save England’s chances on Friday, that he’d like a kiss from the Queen of England.

England’s 2-1 loss to Uruguay on Thursday has them hanging on for dear life in Group D, and they need Italy to beat Costa Rica if they want any chance of advancing to the next round of the World Cup.

Balotelli played in England with Manchester City for two and a half years, before making the move back to Italy, joining Serie A giants A.C. Milan.

And if Balotelli scores a few goals in a big rout of Costa Rica, I’m sure he’ll have a lineup of Brits wanting to lay a juicy one on him.
