I love the Italian team but have to applaud New Zealand. Paston was outstanding in goal and when NZ almost scored there at the end, I found myself wishing they had. An awesome game for the underdog!
The US was robbed of the win and I'm still angry about that bogus call. I don't like drawing lots to determine advancement. Hell of a way to go out.
ETA: From FIFA:
In order to advance to the second round, the U.S. needs either of the following:
•Scenario 1: U.S. win against Algeria
•Scenario 2: U.S. tie against Algeria, England loss against Slovenia
•Scenario 3: England ties Slovenia AND U.S. maintains their Goals Scored advantage, which is currently at +2
A U.S. loss to Algeria, or a U.S. tie coupled with an England victory against Slovenia and the U.S. would be eliminated.
