The AC Milan striker headed in Candreva’s cross in the 50th minute of the game, to give the Azzurri a 2-1 win over the Three Lions, after Daniel Sturridge’s finish had cancelled out Claudio Marchisio’s goal.
Balotelli, who is making his first appearance in a World Cup told Gazzetta dello Sport: “It’s a unique experience.
“I’ve never played a World Cup. It was my first World Cup match and it was a wonderful sensation to experience.
“My goal is dedicated to my future wife who is here and my friends who are at home.”
Italy will play Costa Rica on June 20 and Uruguay on June 24, but Balotelli insists Cesare Prandelli’s men will relish the opportunity.
“We do not fear anyone,” he continued. “But we have to play without getting ahead of ourselves, and only think of Costa Rica. We must keep our feet on the ground otherwise we’re going nowhere.
“The climactic conditions were just terrible tonight in Manaus,” he added when asked about the heat and humidity of the Amazonian city.
“It was far too hot. Italy always suffer, but the important thing is to win.”
