(AP) Nigeria rolled to a 6-1 victory at Confederations Cup on Monday over Tahaiti, which was making its debut at a major FIFA tournament.


Nnamdi Oduamadi scored a hat-trick for the African champions, while Elderson Echiejile added two more.


Still, the team from the South Pacific may have had the game's best moment.


Jonathan Tehau headed in a goal early in the second half at the Mineirao Stadium to reduce the deficit to 3-1. The Tahitians then celebrated by mimicking a rowing boat.


Tehau also scored an own-goal.
