Super Eagles winger Nnamdi Oduamadi was full of praise for the Tahitian’s courage on Monday. The Oceania champions came out of their shell and searched for goals against the Super Eagles, which they eventually got in the 55th minute through Jonathan Tehau.

The Varese of Italy on-loan striker said after the match that: “Tahiti came out to fight like lions. It was a little bit difficult to up our game. You know you’re playing against a team where, with the greatest respect to Tahiti, you think everything’s easy. They showed us that they can play football.”

Oduamadi’s impressive form also won him plaudits from soccer enthusiasts after scoring a hat-trick in the 6-1 demolition. He went into the record books as the first African to score a hat-trick at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

He also became the first Nigerian to hit a treble at a senior FIFA international tournament.

The winger took to twitter to repose the confidence of Nigerians and Africans at large in his capabilities, after the match against the South Pacific Islanders, Tahiti (@Oduamadi7).

“Wanna say a big thank u to you all. We gonna make Nigeria and Africa proud. My best is yet to come. Jesus is Lord,” he tweeted.
