Somalia and Eritrea national teams have arrived in Nairobi ahead of this year’s Senior Challenge Cup.

Somalia coach Mohammed Abdulle said he hopes to help the team qualify for the second round of the tournament.

The coach also wants to reduce the high number of goals his side always concedes in the regional competition.

“We have never missed participation in the last 50 years and we hope this year, we can have better results in Kenya. We are looking at perhaps a second round finish,”

“We cannot pretend that it will be easy. Our opponents are quite formidable. Tanzania for example beat us 7-0 last year while Burundi hammered us 5-0.

“Zambia who are also in the same pool with us won the Africa Cup of  Nations finals two years ago and are the favorites to win the tournament this year,” he told Goal.

      that is the sprit! the gehdil sprit. there are 10 teams but you are occupied only With ethiopia. we remember the lonly Olympics bronz Eritrea had is cellebrated for winning the Fifth ethiopian runner than the bronz itself. The gehdil mentality. In that same compitiion ethiopians took the gold and the silver and it wan not about eritreans at all. So dear ghedli sympatizer, there are more than 200 nations in this world. If you only compare With Eritrea then you are doomed. if yoo only know the potential Eritrea has!

    Welcome the football team, the shameless leader Isayas Afewerki boasts in your name, do you think he should deserve this? Absolute not, tha last one to feel about your success if any.
    Leave him in the cold, frozen erea of despair, frustration and utter loneliness.
    Football is a free enterprise with free will of talented youths fostered right.The guy ruined you, destroyed your free will and treats you in custody unable to let you move free as humans?
    Find your way to freedom and breath that aie scarce in Eritrea????

    Dear readers please apologize me for that i say Ethiopian football is not becoming better. Realy by chance after i saw the second match video between Ethiopia and Nigeria, for world cup qualification that has held in Addis Ababa on 16, November 2013, i really realized how i am very distanced from the reality. Really Ethiopian had play very impressing football. almost 90 minutes they were dominated. but unfortunately the Cameroon referee i don´t know how much bribe money he received from wealthy Nigerian players, but he canceled not only the Ethiopian 100% scored goal, but he was demoralizing them by giving yellow card. In my view Ethiopia supposed to win that much by 6 to 2. See the much your self and judge. Even in old time i didn´t see when Ethiopian played such attractive football i would say! Bravo Neighbors!
