New Zealand 1-1 Slovakia

Winston Reid headed a dramatic injury-time equaliser for New Zealand against Slovakia to earn the Kiwis their first ever World Cup point.

Slovakia were on course for a perfect start in their debut World Cup as an independent nation after Robert Vittek's 50th-minute header grabbed the lead.

But Slovakia paid for sitting back on their lead when, in the third minute of injury time, Reid rose to head home Shane Smeltz's left-wing cross.

The result in Rustenburg leaves all four teams in Group F on a point each after Italy's draw with Paraguay on Monday.
