Thats a very tricky thing to say considering that WCQ is a matter of ratios..

How many West African countries there are compared to.. lets say.... North Africa for example?

20 to 7?

Good point Sabry. If we let aside North-Africa I think that West Africa is better than for instance East-Africa. Reason for this might be that West Africans might have a better physique for football, like East Africans have a better physique for long distance running for instance. On the same note you can see that West Africans (or descendants in the Caribean or North-America) are also very good at other ball games and explosive athletics like sprinting.

Just a theory I have, might be a very lousy one.

West African's players have stronger body than the others.

East Africans is better than West in staying power.
