Hat trick from Nnamdi Oduamadi, a brace from Uwa Echiile and an own goal from  Tahiti’s Tehau gave the African champions the Super Eagles of Nigeria an expected win over minnows Tahiti 6-1 in their 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup opening Group B match played on Monday in Belo Horizonte.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria only arrived in Brazil for the 2013 FIFA confederations cup 36 hours before the game after a row over bonus payments. 

The Nigerian Super Eagles were very wasteful in their finishing. Amed Musa, Sunday Mba and Anthony Ujah are all guilty of wasting precious scoring chances. The Tahitians show a little class as Tehau reduced their goal deficit to 3-1 in the 54th minute of the first half. The super eagles added three more goals in the second half to bring the final score line to 6 - 1 .

With this result Nigeria is now sitting top of the FIFA confederations cup group B followed by Spain. The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be playing Uruguay on Thursday 20th June 2013.

Stephen Keshi and his men must raise their game against Uruguay if they are expecting to come out of the encounter victorious.
