World Champions Italy finished bottom in the Group

As expected defending World Champions Italy was knocked out of the World cup following a 3-2 defeat against Slovakia. Everyone expected this to happen, after Marcelo Lippi hugely controversial decision to exclude Antonio Cassano and Fabrizio Miccoli. Eventhough they got themselves into good positions throughout yesterday's match, they never had the strike power to finish of those chances. Meanwhile the New Zealand - Paraguay match ended in a goalless draw. That means the brave NewZealand side was eliminated from the World cup. In Group F Holland maintained their 100% win record with a 2-1 victory over Cameroon. Japan secured a birth in next round with a 3-1 victory over Denmark. Japan will now face Paraguay while Netharlands will face Slovakia.

Do or Die, time for Spain

For the current European champion Spain today represent a do or die situation. A victory against Chile will help them not only secure the qualification but also the top spot. But anything other than that result could see Spain making yet another early exit. Iniesta is expected to return back to the side, probably taking the place of Jesus Navas. Iniesta has been in good form apart from his injury, but what should worry Spanish fans is the form of Xavi. Going to the last day all four teams have the mathematical chance of qualification. Chile is leading the pack with six points but a heavy defeat against Spain could see them struggling. In Group G, Portugal and Brazil has already booked their place. Ivory Coast needs a close to 10-0 victory over North Korea and Brazil to do a favour to take them through.
