Confederations Cup of Life / Mata, Torres, Azpilicueta on a Tahiti vacation / Thursday Open Thread

Juan Mata smiles at the prospect of filling his boots with seventeen goals - Jasper Juinen

Spain vs. Tahiti. This is not going to be pretty.

The joke goes that Spain are only going to win 1-0, after scoring an early goal then trying to achieve footballing nirvana with 100% possession the rest of the way. But I think I might prefer that outcome to the absolute pasting that Tahiti are about to receive. Double digits, easy, for Spain.

Today's second game should be infinitely less painful, with Nigeria taking on Uruguay. Both teams were unimpressive in their respective openers, even though Nigeria scored six. John Obi Mikel - a muse to Turkish journalists' wild imaginations - and Kenneth Omeruo vs. hopefully future Chelsea idol Edinson Cavani. Looking forward to this one.
