In World Cup 2010 FIFA Group F, the Slovakian defeat of Italy was a shocker for many. The Italians were defending champions, yet a repeat was something of a slim chance. Only two teams have ever won on a defending championship. Brazil did so in 1958 and in 1962, and Italy did so in 1934 and 1938.
In World Cup 2010 FIFA Group F, Paraguay comes out in Group F as number 1 and will play the runner up in Group E. Slovakia will play the winner of Group E. Paraguay vs Group E runner up match in the Round of 16 is on Tuesday June 29. Slovakia vs Group E winner will be held on Monday, June 28.
