5th Game Group F
Slovakia 3 - 2 Italy
Holders Italy were sent crashing out of the World Cup after an incredible 3-2 defeat to Slovakia at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
With the final whistle having gone in Polokwane after a goalless draw between Paraguay and New Zealand, Italy would have reached the last 16 with an equaliser only for Simone Pepe to miss a golden chance deep into injury-time.
Paraguay top Group F ahead of Slovakia while Italy finish bottom of the group behind New Zealand, becoming the fourth World Cup holder to be eliminated at the group stage.
