You can get live score from the following link:


In Group F, the other two teams are Italy and Paraguay. It should be an easy group for Italy and the other 3 teams would feel that they have some chance to go to the second round.

Most of the New Zealand players play in different clubs outside of the country as football is not that popular among the Kiwis and the country does not have a good professional domestic league. This can be a big problem for the Kiwi coach.

Captain of All Whites Ryan Nelsen is a highly experienced player. In club level, he plays for Blackburn Rovers in EPL. Chris Killen is a good striker and he can cause some problems for Slovak defense.

As for Slovakia national football team, they were a part of Czechoslovakia. So, although they never played in World Cup as a nation, they have good experience and knowledge about this event. In case you did not know, on 1 January 1993, Czechoslovakia emerged as Czech Republic and Slovakia- two separate countries. Right now, many of the players of Slovakia play in different top clubs of Europe.

Prior to World Cup 2010, in the warm up matches, Slovakia lost to Norway 0-1, held on to Cameron 1-1 and thrashed Costa Rica by 3-0.

The prediction is that Slovakia will easily win the match against New Zealand.
