African champions, Nigeria will start their campaign in the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup against Oceania champions, Tahiti in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on June 17.

Nigeria's Super Eagles are also drawn alongside world champions, Spain and South American powerhouse, Uruguay in Group B of the tournament for champions of the different confederations.

Stephen Keshi's men emerged African champions in Johannesburg, South Africa on Sunday night by defeating Burkina Faso by a lone goal through Sunday Mba's strike.

The Nigerian gaffer, Keshi, said at the post-match press conference at the National Stadium in Johannesburg that "it's an honour" to represent the continent in this year's edition of the Confederations Cup.

"It's an honour to win here and an even bigger honour to represent Africa in Brazil at the Confederations Cup. It's a great feeling for us. But we will wait until we get to Brazil," said Keshi on Sunday.

Group A of the Confederations Cup is made up of hosts, Brazil, Japan, Mexico and Italy.
