The 2013 Confederations Cup continues on Monday with a match up between two of the biggest long shots in the tournament. Nigeria and Tahita are set to square off in Group B action with the winner looking to join host nation Brazil atop of the group. Brazil and Uruguay are the favorites to advance from Group B, but a solid start from either of these squads could put them in position to be the surprise of the tournament.
If you had to choose a favorite in the match up, you would have to go with Nigeria, the Africa Cup of Nations winner, but you can never count out Tahiti, who earned their place in the tournament by winning the OFC Nations Cup.
This match up could set someone up for a Cinderella run, so you will want to tune in despite these two teams receiving the least attention out of the Confederations Cup field.
