FIFA Confederation Cup Upcoming matches

The Upcom­ing match of FIFA Con­fed­er­a­tion Cup is between Spain and Uruguay. Uruguay’s lost to 2–1 to Spain on Sunday, before Niger­ia surged to the group B sum­mit with a 6–1 demoli­tion of min­nows Tahiti, but the meet­ing of South Amer­ic­an and Afric­an Cham­pi­on­ship was always des­ig­nated to be pivotal. With both teams expec­ted to lose to world cham­pi­ons Spain and beat Tahiti, a win at Arena Fonte Nova would leave the vic­tors in a strong pos­i­tion to pro­gress to the last 4.


Niger­ia Pre­par­a­tions for the tour­na­ment were dogged by con­tro­versy after the squad ini­tially missed their sched­uled flights to Brazil in protest at a row over bonus pay­ments. Coach Steph­en Keshi said he was relieved to put the furore behind him with the one sided vic­tory over Tahiti, although he was crit­ic­al of his for­ward for not put­ting the game to bed more quickly.
