    This could be another surprise game, we seem to be having enough of them.

    I am predicting a 1 goal victory to New Zealand, but of course I would say that.

    I have outlayed $5 dollars wager with odds of 2000 to 1 if Kiwis bring home the cup - that means $10,000 payout.

    I'm certainly hoping for you, but I'm afraid Italy will win this one. Surprise me NZ

    If Pirlo plays it's a certain win. If Italy presents same lineup as game one they may be in for a rough outing, but unlikely to lose. Maybe if they start Di Natale instead of Inzaghi. Montolivo is a sorry midfielder. If Pirlo can't go and Montolivo starts I see the two sides pretty even. Let's not forget Buffon is probably out rest of cup. New goalie is unknown quantity. Italy failed to impress in first game. Perhaps they'll pull a Uruguay and come out swinging!

    yeah, inzaghi had a terrible game against paraguay, it was almost like he wasn't even in south africa.

    Not quite the white wash everybody was saying.

    KIWIS DRAW AGAINST ITALY

    That is equal to a win from no 78 to defending Champions.

    Great game Kiwis

    Well done NZ! Pity their defender gave Italy (another) penalty, they should have won that!
