Somalia will not have the chance to play in the FIFA Arab Cup at the end of the year in Qatar, but the Ocean Stars fell with the honors by losing a short header to Oman (1-2) this Sunday in the dam in Doha. It may surprise narrow score while 117 places separate the two teams in the FIFA rankings (Oman 80 th , Somalia 197 E )!
Besides, a correction was feared for Somalis, recently forced to change of coach , when the Omanis were the bar before opening the scoring two minutes later by Mohsen Al-Ghasani a dangerous shot released by the keeper (11 th ). Especially Salaah Al Yahyaei quickly doubled the lead after a consecutive penalty kick for a foul porter (25 th ).
But Somalis were shaking and Abel Gigli less then restored hope by reducing the score of the head (54 th ). During an unbridled end of the match, the Somalis were saved by their bar before grazing the equalizer in stride. The Arab Cup will be contested without them but the foals of Hassan Salad have shown great virtues. On Monday, South Sudan will also be looking for a feat against Jordan.
