Yes, it is a fairy tale story for the World Cup first timers. No one gave them a shadow of a chance and now they are in the knockout stages after beating Italy 3-2 on the day. Italy were poor on the day and only came to life in the last 15 minutes. Had they played the whole 90 minutes with that intent, they would not have lost the match. As the Slovakian coach mentioned that it was the second most important day of his life after the birth of his child. Cheers! Ram

I thought Slovakia was a talented team from the start, but they seemed to underperform. All that doesn't matter now as they've beaten Italy in one of the tournament's most dramatic matches; it's a whole new tournament now! I don't really like their chances to go any further, but they should still be very proud of their accomplishment.

Well done to the Slovakia. After their last grasp 1-1 draw with New Zealand, I thought they will be heading home after the group stage. After their defeat to the Paraguay, that strengthen the thought. No one, well for me at least, thought they would have beaten the Italian on the last match to put through.

Yes, Slovakia is amazing. They played great game and beat Italy by score 3-2. It's unbelievable! New comer team beat The Azzuri team and sent them back to home. Congratulation to Slovakia team . Italy famous for having a good defense but Slovakia could make three goal. If Slovakia can keep their performance, it isn't impossible that they can pass to quarter final.
