the South and the soccer players truly demonstrated their love for the game. Several matches were played through the rain and the festival itself was held in an all day rain and less than 60 degrees weather . The Somalian team worked and played hard and deserves the

Championship title. They are ready to defend the title in the 2012 tournament.

We wish all teams the best of luck in 2012. Let the best team win.
