Igbo XI vs Yoruba XI : Who Would Win?

In Nigeria, football is a religion. It is one of the few things that brins the country together across ethnic and religious lines. The senior national team, the Super Eagles, are the ultimate symbol of that unity.

A Look at the Yoruba XI team and formation

Prediction

Both teams have quality players in all departments. The Igbo XI looks like a more dangerous team with the likes of Alex Iwobi, Moses Simon and Samuel Chukwueze causing havoc in the Yoruba XI defence.

The Yoruba XI looks like a one man team that depends only on Victor Osimhen to get the goals. If they ever meet in a football match, the Igbo XI could win 3-1.
