Somalia U20 to play first international game in 30 years


The Somali Football Federation (SFF) announced that their U20 side will face on February 16 to become their first international game in 30 years.

Somalia last played an international game was in 1988 when they hosted Mauritius in Mogadishu in an Olympic qualifier.

The SFF president Abdigani Said Arab expressed his delight regarding this game and the country’s plans for the future of the sport.

“In the near future we could host a Cecafa (regional) tournament,” said Abdiqani Said Arab.

Somalia’s footballing scene has been struggling in the past couple of years due to political instability.

“Now that we have peace that has returned to the country we are happy that finally we shall be hosting an international match after 30 years.

“Our people in Somalia are hungry to watch an international match.”
