It's been four days since Mario Balotelli last graced our pages after kicking a teammate in the head during a goal celebration. That's always one side to the 31-year-old striker's game, but the other is scoring outrageous goals.
Balotelli accomplished that on Sunday with Adana Demirspor's lone goal in a 1-1 draw with Süper Lig opponents Göztepe. He began the move with a searching pass that caused problems for the Göztepe defense, and then Balotelli finished it with a right-footed rocket from distance that arrowed into the far corner.

Balotelli didn't celebrate this wonder strike because "when a postman delivers letters, does he celebrate?"
That's Balotelli's seventh goal in 18 league games. He also has two assists and seven yellow cards.
Adana Demirspor is in sixth-place at the season's halfway point, 16 points behind leader Trabzonspor.
