Italy 1 - New Zealand 1

Well what can I say!  I almost feel like we were robbed of the win, which is pretty crazy when you think that the result was probably one of the greatest results in NZ sporting history, and it sure was the best result ever that New Zealand football have ever done!

I think the NZ Herald have summed it up quite well,
"Take a look at the points table. Look again. Sitting in second, equal with Italy, are New Zealand.

Little, old New Zealand with just 25 professional footballers - Italy has 3541. A country which had played just four World Cup matches before this morning drew with one which has won four World Cup titles. Crazy."

We even lead the match after 6 minutes, what a start!   Italy were only able to get through and equal with us from a oscar performance by one of the Italian players than ended up getting a penalty called for.

If only it had stayed this way.....
