Was Mario Balotelli right to take and score Liverpool's penalty against Besiktas?

Thankfully, he scored in the 85 minute to give Liverpool a victory otherwise, he would have been crucified.

Jordan Henderson, as acting Captain was nominated in the event of any penalty's being awarded, however the more experienced Italian forward gently insisted that he was the man for the job and 40,000 kopites duly rejoiced when he scored to eventually win this tough game for Liverpool.
