Vittek scored twice for Slovakia


Robert Vittek scored twice in the 25th and 73rd minutes.

The Slovakians had more ball possession in the opening session which did have only a few scoring chances from both sides though the game was fast-paced.

But Slovakia's first goal came out of nowhere.

Italy midfielder Daniele De Rossi gave the ball away and Marek Hamsik slips a little pass in for Robert Vittek on the edge of the Italian box, the striker sliding a shot into the left side of the net past a diving keeper Federico Marchetti.

Vittek then scored his second goal in the 73rd minute by slamming home off a Marek Hamsik pass from a move started from a corner kick.
