Tahiti vs Nigeria, Confederations Cup, Group Stage: Open Thread

Tahiti, a tiny island in the South Pacific, battle African powerhouse Nigeria today in the third day of matches in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. Ranked number 138 in the world, and featuring a team of amateurs, not much is known about the Tahiti side, but it’s certainly a Cinderella story.

Here’a promotional video from Tahiti to give you an idea of how this side plays, as well as the field conditions they played on in their island:

Nigeria, meanwhile, have brought over a younger side than normal, so it’ll be a good test to see what depth the current Africa Cup Of Nations champions has.

For viewers in the United States, the game will be shown live on ESPN (and WatchESPN) at 2:30pm ET.
