Using the 1=/N-C expansion scheme and truncating the hadronic spectrum to the lowest-lying resonances, we match a meromorphic approximation to the < SPP > Green function onto QCD by imposing the correct large-momentum falloff, both off- shell and on the relevant hadron mass shells. In this way we determine a number of chiral low-energy constants of O(p(6)), in particular the ones governing SU(3) breaking in the K-l3 vector form factor at zero momentum transfer. The main result of our matching procedure is that the known loop contributions largely dominate the corrections of O(p(6)) to f(+)(0). We discuss the implications of our final value f(+)(K0 pi-) (0) = 0.984 +/- 0.012 for the extraction of V-us from K-l3 decays.
