Elman, a powerful football club who plays in Somalia's division one football championship defeated Mogadishu port club 'Dekedda' by 5-1. The game was described as the biggest humiliation since the 1st division soccer championship was started in Mogadishu in January this year.

At least 15 minutes before the end of the first half of the match, Elman and national team striker Abdi Aziz Mohamed Ali known as 'Hoomey' headed a ball passed by Abdullahi Yusuf Osman and scored into the Port's goal. The first half ended in 1-0 with Elman having the lead.

In the 58th minute of the match, Elman gained the second goal after its striker Sa'ad Saleh Hussein scored, while Abdi Aziz Mohamed Ali signed the 3rd goal for his team in the 65th minute of the second half.
