"My particular thanks and gratefulness are due to the Qatar FA president his highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani for hosting the friendly match in a bid to raise money for his brothers in Somalia-Qatar. Somalia has long-existing bilateral relations and both football Federations in Qatar and Somalia are strengthening that old relation," the Somali Football Federation President Said Mahmoud Nur emphasized in his Tuesday's press statement.
The statement highlighted that the kingdom of Qatar was already playing a very big role in helping hundreds of needy people in Somalia. Qatar Football Association's latest step showed that Qatar's people and government are sharing the hardships with their Somali brothers.
