Spain vs Tahiti and Nigeria vs Uruguay, Confederations Cup: Open Thread

Spain, Tahiti, Nigeria and Uruguay play their second matches of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup today.

After Spain’s convincing 2-1 victory against Uruguay, the current World and European champions faces Tahiti in a true David vs Goliath match. Who would have thought a few years ago that the tiny South Pacific island would be facing the current world champion?

In the second match today, Africa Cup of Nations champion Nigeria battles Uruguay in a match where Uruguay will want to overturn the first defeat they suffered in this tournament at the hands of Spain.

For viewers in the United States, the Spain vs Tahiti game will be shown live on ESPN (and WatchESPN) at 2:45pm ET. The Nigeria against Uruguay match kicks off at 5:45pm ET on the same channels.

    With all the civil unrest in Brazil I read a few articles where the World Cup there might be in danger. I have not been watching the Confederations Cup. Are any of the commentators commenting on this?

    For some reason the the Nigeria Uruguay match is on ESPN2 instead of ESPN proper.

      It would have interfered with SportsCenter. Never allowed. 🙂

        I don’t understand why ESPN even made ESPN News since they play Sports Center all day on ESPN proper.

    Saw this on the BBC live text:

    If Torres can score 3 so can Tahiti!

    Is the score really 10:0…gross!

    I just hope Tahiti are not embarrassed with a rugby score.

    Looking forward to the second game to see how Uruguay do. They haven’t been good at all since winning the Copa America. They might not even make the World Cup. Nigeria won easily against Tahiti but were not impressive so hopefully better opposition might bring out the best in them.

      Two tries. No conversions… nil. Ah, well.
