World Cup 2010, Italy Vs. Slovakia: Robert Vittek's Second Goal Puts Defending Champions On Life Support

Robert Vittek scored his second goal of the match in the 74th minute, finishing the play off a corner kick, to put the defending champion Italy down 2-0 and likely out of the World Cup.

A Marek Hamsik corner kick failed to clear the first Italian defender, but the ball headed back to the Slovak kick-taker was rolled to the end of the six, near post, for Vittek’s right-footed finish, giving the Slovak’s a 2-0 lead.

Italy, as results stand, is set to finish last in Group F, with Slovakia on track for a second place finish, with Paraguay and New Zealand drawn 0-0 in the group’s other match.
