Final score>> Uruguay 2 - Nigeria 1

Despite Uruguay poor performance showing against Spain, Uruguay look like favorites to

progress to the next round of the Confederations Cup after their victory over Nigeria.

Uruguay were disappointed to the extent neutral fans booed them in their opening game against Spain, but they were much active against Nigeria on Thursday night. They gave away their early lead, but fought back and remain in front in the second half, and they never let go of their 2-1 lead.

Meanwhile, Nigeria started to look very disastrous on the counter around the time of the goal and finally equalizes in the 37th minute, from an unlikely source. John Obi Mikel, who has never scored in 186 Premier League appearances, turned Lugano inside-out before placing a skillful finish into the top corner from 15 yards.

Tragedy for Nigeria, they didn't stay in the game for long despite their odd promising attack here and there. Thus earlier comment from people is that the match is gonna be hot because of the two hard team meeting together.
Uruguay is to face Tahiti next, and Nigerian will almost certainly have to beat Spain to progress to the next round.
