Tahiti, the Cinderella of the group of Spain in the Confederations Cup
More known for its beaches than for its football, selection Tahiti occupies the position 139 in the FIFA ranks. He has very little international experience and the participation of his youth team in the World Cup sub 20 Of Egipt 2009 is considered a milestone. With scarcely 178.000 population, It is located in the south of the Pacific and is the largest island in French Polynesia. It really is an ideal place to travel and enjoy its landscapes, but not really to compete at a professional level in any sport discipline.
Its citizens are full-fledged French, fruit of the Gallic colonial expansion of past centuries. And his only recognized player is the midfielder Marama Vahirua, from the Greek Panthakikos. It was international sub 21 French, but then he opted for the Tahitian team. With great creativity in the ocean qualification phase, it is to be hoped that during the Confederations Cup he does not show that happy game that he has boasted in recent months. Quite the contrary, with almost total security it will put together a good ultra-defense system, waiting for the rivals to delay in scoring the first goal.
