A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

USA 1, Italy 1

America are level within five minutes though, Cristian Zaccardo turning Bobby Convey's free-kick into his own net 

USA held on for most of the second half with nine men to earn a gutsy draw with 10-man Italy in an enthralling match.

Italy went ahead when Alberto Gilardino headed home Andrea Pirlo's free-kick, before USA levelled soon after thanks to Cristian Zaccardo's sliced own goal.

For only the fourth time at a World Cup three men were sent off, Daniele De Rossi for an elbow, Pablo Mastroeni for a foul and Eddie Pope for two bookings.

Kasey Keller saved well from Alessandro Del Piero to leave Group E wide open.
