World Cup 2010: Slovakia 0, New Zealand 0 - Kiwis Hold Their Own In Scoreless First Half

Another scoreless first half at the 2010 World Cup has New Zealand playing a surprisingly even match with Slovakia. Beyond the score, New Zealand has been able to generate a number of dangerous, if ultimately lacking, set piece chances.

But Slovakia still dominated possession and ultimately had the better chance – Vladimir Weiss going wide neat post with an attempt from 18 yards out.

Slovakia, who started a surprise 4-3-3 in lieu of their normal 4-4-2, have not been able to take advantage of their superior skill in midfield, having 62 percent of the possession but ultimately no good chances.

Both teams have one shot on goal.
