Róbert Vittek’s brace and Kamil Kopunek‘s (pictured) decisive third goal were just enough for Slovakia to edge out Italy 3-2 at Ellis Park in Johannesburg. One of the most dramatic games of the tournament, Italy scored twice in the final ten minutes of the match, each time reducing a two-goal deficit to just one. But playing well only in the final ten minutes of the third group stage game usually does not see a team through, which is exactly the case for the Italians who crash out of the tournament as the last place side in Group F. Slovakia leap clear of New Zealand and take second position, just behind Paraguay.
