The game started of with italy playing the best. But in the 7th minute disaster struck for the defending champions, as a goal was sored by new Zealand. The goal was put under questioning by the Italians as they lead a dispute against the goal,saying it was offside. After the goal Italy had lots of chances including a free kick 1 minute after the goal. The chances were mostly going over the net. In the 27th minute it was a penalty for Italy. And they Scored. Was it the beginning of a coming back from the Italians? Its seems not as that was the end result 1-1.
