FORTALEZA, Brazil -- Mario Balotelli was sent home from the Confederations Cup on Monday due to a strained thigh, leaving Italy without its top striker for both the semifinal vs. Spain and the final or third-place match. Having already been ruled out of Thursdays semifinal, Italy coach Cesare Prandelli decided to send Balotelli home after consulting with team physician Enrico Castellacci. "I feel like a loser leaving this way. I would have liked to stay but theres the Champions League preliminary round so Ive got to take care of myself," Balotelli said upon leaving the team hotel, referring to matches in August with AC Milan. "Anyhow my teammates will do well even without me." Balotelli injured his left quadriceps during Italys 4-2 loss to Brazil on Saturday. He has been the Azzurris most explosive player in the tournament so far, scoring the winner in a 2-1 victory over Mexico, converting a penalty in the 4-3 win over Japan and setting up a goal for Emanuele Giaccherini against Brazil. "Hes obviously very upset but theres just not enough time for him to return," Prandelli said, adding that the decision was made without any pressure from Milan. "We just used good sense." Castellacci said that Milans medical staff will take over treatment. "I checked out Balotelli this morning and, considering his condition, I dont think he will be able to recuperate before the final," Castellacci said. "Its not worth taking more risks." Balotelli is the second Italy player sent home since the Brazil match, with fullback Ignazio Abate -- who also plays for Milan -- having left Sunday with a dislocated right shoulder. Meanwhile, midfielder Andrea Pirlo, who sat out Saturdays match with Brazil due to a muscle problem, continued to train separately from the rest of the squad. "Pirlo continues to work out and were optimistic but we need to evaluate him day by day and we wont decide whether he can play until the last minute," Castellacci said. In a bit of positive news, midfielder Riccardo Montolivo has fully recuperated from a knock to the head and trained regularly Monday. Alberto Gilardino would seem to be Balotellis logical replacement if Prandelli sticks with his single-striker lineup. Or he could use several forwards such as Emanuele Giaccherini, Stephan El Shaarawy, Sebastian Giovinco, Alessio Cerci or Alessandro Diamanti. "Without Mario well have to work much more collectively so well work more on that," Prandelli said. "We have a few problems but the squad is responding well despite the difficulties."

Once again, DeLaet finished tied for second at a PGA Tour stop on the weekend, this time at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The pride of Weyburn, Sask. Just when you though Gold Coast might have turned the corner.The Suns showed few vital signs at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon, helping Essendon earn their second AFL win of the season and their first triumph in 18 matches.Even for a side that specialises in false dawns, this was a spectacular letdown.Gold Coast had impressed in recent weeks, claiming three wins in their past six and meritorious losses to Melbourne and Greater Western Sydney.But there was no fluency in their play against the Dons, who ran harder and wanted the premiership points more.Coach Rodney Eade said the actions of a few went against the game plan.Today there were a lot of individuals that wanted to do their own thing, he said.Not kicking to right spots. Not picking the right options. Doing their own thing, which is probably the most disappointing part.We didnt think our pressure was up to our normal standard, which is again a mental aspect.Some players just wanted to be individuals.Eade didnt mention his worst offenders, but a few glaring performances stood out.Jarrod Garletts petulance to kick the ball away and earn a 50-metre penalty cost his side a goal.ddddddddddddaron Halls contest was lacking on occasions, while Eade said a message to get defender Steven May to keep running with Joe Daniher didnt get through.Eade suggested he would drop players if he could.I havent got many coming back ... theres not much we can do at selection unfortunately, he said.Two fourth-term rushed behind decisions that went against his side also baffled Eade, who said they were definite free kicks.The 16th-season coach maintained he would be feeling as frustrated even if theyd won off the back of those decisions.If we managed to get up and win Id still be feeling the same because our performance was still as it was, he said.However, there was praise for Touk Miller, who enjoyed his best AFL performance with 39 touches and a goal.He was one player that worked both ways, Eade said.Hes a bona fide midfielder for us and no matter who weve got in the midfield next year hell be one of the starting four.
