Referees made a mistake. Slovakia's goal was OFFSIDE. Pause it right when the cross is delivered and look at Vittek compared to the defenders.

Oh well, 3:0 would have been better then 4:0. I guess NZ is representing Australasia in this world cup!

New Zealand played a hard fought match. In the end, NZ manages a draw which is still pretty good.
