Nigeria has produced great players from all tribes over years, like Rashidi Yekini, Uche Okechukwu, Emmanuel Amunike, Segun Odegbami etc.

I will ex-ray the Igbo and Yoruba teams in an opinion piece, it will be left to fans on who will win.

The first team I will take is the Igbo.

Maduka Okoye will be protected by Kenneth Omeruo, Chidozie Awaziem and Uche Agbo in a back three.

Okoye takes the number one shirt ahead of Francis Uzoho, who plays for Apoel Nicosia in Cyprus.

The two wing backs will be Samuel Chukwueze and Samuel Kalu.

Meanwhile, Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi should hold forth at the middle of the park.

The forward line is loaded with in form strikers like Kelechi Iheanacho, Paul Onuachu and Simy Nwankwo.

Fast forward to the Yoruba team will see a 4-3-3 formation with Hapoel Jerusalem young lad Adeleye Adebayo manning the post.

The back four is a straight forward one with Ola Aina, Brian Idowu, Tosin Adarabioyo and Jamilu Collins the annointed ones.

Rangers star Joe Aribo will be assisted by Tom Dele Bashiru and Ramon Azeez at the middle of the park.

There is no doubt about the three forwards, which are Junior Ajayi, Olarenwaju Kayode and Taiwo Awoniyi.

Here are the teams below…

Igbo XI (3-4-3): Maduka Okoye, Kenneth Omeruo, Uche Agbo, Chidozie Awaziem, Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, Samuel Kalu, Paul Onuachu, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho, Simy Nwankwo

Yoruba XI (4-3-3): Adeleye Adebayo, Ola Aina, Jamilu Collins, Tosin Adarabioyo, Brian Idowu, Ramon Azeez, Joe Aribo, Tom Dele Bashiru, Olarenwaju Kayode, Taiwo Awoniyi, Junior Ajayi
