Group F - Italy 1-1 Paraguay: Italy and Paraguay share spoils

Holders Italy opened their 2010 FIFA World Cup™ campaign with a 1-1 draw against Paraguay in Group F on a rainy evening at Green Point Stadium in Cape Town.

Antolin Alcaraz shocked the Gemany 2006 champions in the 39th minute to open the scoring, while Italy’s Daniel De Rossi took advantage of some unconvincing goalkeeping by veteran Justo Villar to equalise just after the hour mark. New Zealand and Slovakia play the group’s other opening match tomorrow in Rustenburg.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hey, Argentino. No way this country is gonna win anything. Both Argentina and Brazil will buy them out. Its the second most corrupt country in the world, but 1th when it comes to football. You know, I know it- all south america knows.
