“Balogun has joined the team here in Atlanta. He's very positive and mixing with others players already.

Brazil are back among football's 10 best teams according to the latest FIFA Ranking.If it does not seem right in world football to see five-time world champions Brazil suffer, things have now started looking correct. Glittering from their tremendous performances at the just-ended 2013 Confederations Cup, the Samba Boys have rocketed back in the top 10 of the FIFA Ranking. Still, it would take much more than a one-sided 3-0 win against Spain in the Confeds Final for Neymar and his colleagues to kick La Furia Roja away from the summit.

The Brazilians entered the tournament ranked 22nd in the world. In other words, this signified their worst ever position in the chart. Their South American rivals, Uruguay, have also jumped seven places and are now 12th whereas Colombia surprisingly occupy the third spot behind Spain and Germany.

Here is a count down of the top 5 goals of the tournament, as compiled by Live Soccer TV.

Nigeria vs Spain, Uruguay vs Tahiti: Watch live on TV or online – June 23, 2013

A flurry of goals, high levels of drama, bitterness and euphoria are expected ahead of Spain vs Nigeria and Uruguay vs Tahiti on June 23, 2013. Watch both matches live on TV or online.

Spain tops Group B while Nigeria and Uruguay look to qualify ahead of Matchday 3 at the FIFA Confederations Cup.Group B permutations – who will qualify in first and second position?

Analytically, only one more semi-final ticket is up for grabs at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. Although it looks to be going Uruguay’s way, AFCON 2013 champions Nigeria hold the daring dream of creating an upset this Sunday.

Brazil and Italy are already through and so are Spain – virtually. Looking at the goal difference factor in Group B, it would sound absurd to believe that La Furia Roja could finish in third position in the table. Mathematically, though, this remains a possibility.

Ahead of Matchday 3, the Spaniards count 6 points with 12 goals scored and only one allowed. Nigeria are second with three points and a (+4) goal difference. At this point, the Super Eagles might regret not hitting many more goals against Tahiti in their opening game.

FIFA U-20 World Cup: Portugal, Nigeria poised to top South Korea, Cuba - Group B

Saturday June 22 2013,
Tags: Portugal, Cuba, South Korea, Nigeria
This group consists of four talented teams out of which two are definitely clear favorites to progress to the next stage.
The youth of Spain, Germany and recently Italy have been much appreciated. Even the small number of brilliant youths England produces is highly appreciated. More often than not, Portugal’s youth goes unnoticed. The caliber of Portugal is often underestimated.

This country has been producing good players, if not world beaters, down the years. The like of Nuno Gomez, Rui Costa, Ricardo Carvalho, and Paulo Ferreira have retired or are on the way to retiring. They were all special. The current generation is also quite special. Joao Moutinho’s name always springs to mind as does Miguel Veloso’s.

Luis Suarez and Mikel Obi meet in a must-win game for Uruguay against Nigeria on Thursday, June 20, 2013. LiveSoccerTV previews the match and tells you where to watch it live.

Nigeria and Uruguay will close Matchday 2 in Group B with a late kick-off.The gap between Nigeria and Uruguay is huge but only two games have been played between these two teams in Group B so anything could happen moving forward. The Super Eagles had the luck of kicking off their Confederation Cup 2013 campaign against the weakest side of the tournament, Tahiti.

Meanwhile, La Celeste Olimpica had the opposite – a meeting with the world’s highest-ranked nation, Spain. At the end of Matchday 1, the table placed the Africans on top with a (+6) goal difference while the South Americans were placed third with no point after kicking off their 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup campaign on a bad note last weekend.

The clash between the Nigerians and the Uruguayans on June 20 will certainly showcase t he true strength of both sides.

FIFA Confederations Cup Group B Analysis: Can Nigeria upset Spain or Uruguay?

Monday June 17 2013,
Tags: Nigeria, Spain, Uruguay, Tahiti, Confederations Cup 2013
Nigeria has been placed in an extremely tough group in the Confederations Cup. Can they overcome the likes of Spain and Uruguay to reach the semifinals?
A simple look at the Nigerian squad by a casual observer of the game will not be shocking; their will hardly be any recognizable names. Seasoned followers will be surprised though as the likes of Peter Odemwingie, Joseph Yobo and Obafemi Martins are not part of the squad. Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike are unavailable. Nonetheless, seasoned followers will also realize that this squad has plenty of playing experience in the toughest of European leagues under their belt.

The first name that sticks out is obviously that of the Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel. He has a European Cup to his name of course. A 26 year old by the name of Joseph Akpala plies his trade in one of the world’s most attacking leagues, the Bundesliga and will get a chance to make his name in this competition.

Nigeria and Tahiti will face off on Monday, June 17 in both teams' 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup openerTahiti’s first mission: winning the love of Brazil

The Tahitians should be in formidable form, physically. They were the first country to touch base in Brazil as they arrived on Friday, June 7. The football history of this country is very much unknown globally. Winning the 2012 OFC Nations Cup was a tremendous achievement but participating in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup means even more: it is a gateway to the world for Eddy Etaeta and his underdog team. 

“We are very pleased to be here in Brazil for the FIFA Confederations Cup which is a massive event for Tahitian football,” coach Etaeta stated last week before adding:

2013 Confederations Cup: Three Key Goalies- Casillas, Enyeama, Muslera

Ahead of the confederations cup, we take a look at three goalkeepers whose saves could affect the challengers dramatically.

Iker Casillas

The Real Madrid goalkeeper had a dramatic season. Jose Mourinho benched him in what was both a sporting and political move. This tournament could very well be Casillas’ chance to show that he is still one of the best keepers in the world. Casillas has won all there is to win in the international and club game. He has nothing to prove to anybody; however, the fact that Mourinho demoted him has left him a point to prove.

One of the criticisms labeled at Casillas is that he always pushes the ball away rather than catching it. However, he has made a number of world class saves throughout his career exactly because of this including a match saving one in the Euros in 2008 against Italy as well a pair of saves against Arjen Robben in the World Cup Final of 2010. Casillas will go down in history as one of the most decorated players of his generation. He can add yet another trophy to his cabinet by winning the confederations cup with Spain.
