2010 Football World cup squads

Defending champion Italy was held to another 1-1 draw Sunday, this time by New Zealand, in the latest World Cup surprise.

The 78th-ranked All Whites took the lead in the seventh minute when 36-year-old Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro made a horrendous error, gifting a goal to Shane Smeltz.

Riccardo Montolivo hit the post for Italy in the 27th, and Vincenzo Iaquinta equalized two minutes later with a penalty, after Tommy Smith was shown a yellow card for tugging down Daniele De Rossi inside the area.

Paraguay leads Group F with four points, followed by Italy and New Zealand with two points each. Slovakia is last with one point.

Italy meets Slovakia in its final group match on Thursday. New Zealand faces Paraguay.
