Confederations Cup: Vincent Enyeama: It Is Normal To Support The UnderdogsNigeria lacked support in Monday night's game against Oceania representatives Tahiti as a large number of Brazilian fans trooped to the stadium in Belo Horizonte to cheer the underdogs.

Nonetheless, the Super Eagles players are used to playing in more intimidating stadiums, and the partisan crowd did not affect the outcome of the encounter.

In his post match comments after the 6 - 1 hammering of Tahiti, Nigeria skipper stated that they were not bothered by the opposing fans.

Enyeama told TV Globo: ''That is normal. Everywhere in the world, always support the underdogs.

''
Furthermore, their team was already here (in Belo Horizonte) had more than a week, and we just got.

'' Nobody even saw us train. It was obvious that the other team would have more sympathy from the local crowd.''

Nigeria will lock horns with South American champions Uruguay on Thursday, June 20.

Because of the rivalry between Brazil and Uruguay, it fits the theme that the locals will support the African champions.
