Slovakia has Italy on the verge of elimination, with Robert Vittek’s 26th minute goal putting the Slovaks ahead of Italy 1-0 and in a position to go through Group F.
A bad Daniele De Rossi giveaway in his own end ended up on Robert Vittek’s foot near the arc. The Slovakian striker’s shot end along the ground just inside Federico Marchetti’s right post, giving the Slovaks the lead.
Italy has now allowed three goals this tournament without a save.
As Group F currently stands, Paraguay and Slovakia would go through.
