WC 2010 Day 5 : Video Highlights

Slovakia 1 New Zealand 1
New Zealand looked heading for heroic loser status, trailing 1-0 to Slovakia with time running out. But then Shane Smeltz crossed the ball into the Slovakia box in the 93rd minute and Winston Reid rose highest and headed home to make it a dramatic 1-1, The All Whites' first ever point in World Cup history, so no matter what happens in the games against Italy and Paraguay, they are going back home as heroes.

Portugal 0 Ivory Cost 0
Portugal and Ivory Coast had to make do with a point apiece in Port Elizabeth. Cristiano Ronaldo, who has not scored an international goal in 16 months, was denied by the woodwork wheb he rattled a post with a blistering early strike, but that was as close as his side came to snatching victory. Even Didier Drogba's arrival as a second-half substitute, to the delight of the crowd, could not separate the sides as each attempted to gain the upper hand in Group G ahead of their respective encounters with Brazil.

Brazil 2 North Korea 1
Brazil had big anticipation leading up to kickoff. It's a clash between David and Goliath, a mismatch perhaps. However North Korea did prove their worth and scare off the mighty Brazil. It took Brazil 55 minutes to break the deadlock with Maicon's wonder goal. In the end it was 2-1 for Brazil, but Yun-Nam Ji will be a national hero back in North Korea.
