It was a dramatic end to the Association of Faculty of Arts’ Students, University of Ibadan Super Four Football competition as Department of Philosophy imploded in their last match to allow English win the four-team league tournament.
Philosophy had been widely expected to run away with the winning prize, as they did last year, having won their previous two games against English 3-1 and History 3-0, but the football god seemed to have other thoughts as the sudden brilliance of the Theatre Art’s team, who had nothing to lose, confounded Philosophy. The game ended 3-1 in favour of Theatre Art.
The shocking result allowed English, who had trounced History 6-1, scale over Philosophy on the league table on goal differences. English had earlier won 1-0 against Theatre Art in their second match.
