MILAN, Italy -- Mario Balotelli scored one goal and set up two others Thursday as AC Milan beat Darfo Boario 10-0 in a friendly.

Balotelli came on at halftime for his first appearance in a Milan shirt, hours after finalizing his transfer from Manchester City.

It took Balotelli only 12 minutes to score Milan's sixth goal, rounding the goalkeeper before slotting home.

The 22-year-old Balotelli also set up two goals for strike partner Stephan El Shaarawy.

Balotelli will be presented to the media at San Siro on Friday at 7 p.m. (1800 GMT).

He is expected to make his official Milan debut on Sunday against Udinese.
