The odds are them scoring were pretty long too, but the lads from the Pacific have managed to grab themselves a goal against Nigeria.
They fell behind to an unlucky own goal in the first five minutes, Nnamdi Oduamadi added a second on the ten minute mark, and he grabbed another to give Nigeria a 3-0 lead after a bit of a clanger from Xavier Samin in the Tahitian goal.
Having lost 7-0 to the Chilean U20s side before this tournament (who are a decent side, it should be noted), there were serious worries about the scoreline being embarrassing, but Jonathan Tehau rose above Celtic’s Efe Ambrose to power home a great header, which has given Tahiti a great boost.
The lads on the RTE panel were making the point at the half-time break that the Nigerian team has been very sloppy given that the standard of Tahiti’s play has been very low, but this goal will certainly be a memorable moment for Jonathan Tehau. Their official football federation’s Twitter account is absolutely loving it anyway.
