Tetapi pikir-pikir sayang juga melewatkan acara puncak salah satu perhelatan akbar, FIFA World Cup, yang 4 tahun sekali itu. Wah harus ada jagoan baru nih.

But Germany overwhelmed the Argentines, and shut down Messi in the process. The reigning FIFA world player of the year leaves South Africa without a goal, and was in tears after the game.

Slovakia started the game powerfully and showed their domination to led 2 - 0 with Robert Vittek's goals in 25th and 73rd minutes.  Only in the 81st minute did Antonio DiNatale manage to put the ball in the net for the Italians. From there they began to emerge and dominate the play, a furious rally in search of a second goal to preserve their tournament lives.
